MUSIC-LOVERS are urged to sign up to a Sheffield festival to be in with the chance of discount tickets.

More than 5,000 people have already signed up as Tramliners ahead of the annual Tramlines Festival in the city centre over three days in July.

Due to Sheffield Council budget cuts and the withdrawal of a major sponsor, the Star-backed festival is charging for entry to a number of its venues for the first time, at £6 per day – but fans can sign up to purchase discounted tickets.

Sarah Nulty, festival co-founder and director, said: “We value the crowds who have made Tramlines what it is.

“That is why we are encouraging our loyal fans to sign up to become a Tramliner and get the inside track on the festival build up, as well as a chance to get a discounted weekend ticket for just £15.”

The weekend tickets are limited to those who sign up and they will be told when and where they go on sale nearer the festival dates of July 19 to 21.

Miss Nulty, aged 31, from Woodseats, said: “We have had a fantastic response so far with thousands signing up, but want to make sure people don’t miss out.

“That is why we are encouraging as many people as possible to sign up.

“We are just weeks away from our first line-up announcement – things are gearing up for this year’s festival.

“We have worked hard to deliver a fantastic line-up and are confident people will continue to support the festival.

“We know that at just £6 a day or £15 for Tramliner weekend tickets we are one of the most competitively priced festivals out there.
