Headliners Basement Jaxx will also perform a DJ set, while there will also performances from Sheffield’s Lo Shea and South London producer Henry Wu.
Sarah Nulty, festival director, said: ““We are very excited to add even more fantastic and diverse artists to the bill.
“We want to ensure that the night at Tramlines is a strong as the daytime.
“We almost have a continual run of music for 24 hours a day, and with all this in store, we expect people will be getting very little sleep this year.”

Other acts announced for the festival – which runs from Friday to Sunday, July 24 to 26, include Ninja Tune’s Romare and producer James Holden.
A festival spokesman said: “For fans of house and techno, there’s plenty on offer as Tramlines has topped up the bill with the minimal warehouse techno sounds of Sheffield’s Lo Shea; acid house and techno from Berlin-based Klasse Recordings founder Luca Lozano; and bags of grime-inspired house and techno from Pev n Kowton of the Livity Sound trio.
“Keeping its late-night programme as diverse as possible, Tramlines has drafted in talent which spans the bass music scenes.
“Acts include Cervo & JVC, with their flamboyant crossover of African and Latin American sounds and global electronica, emerging hip-hop producer Cypria; dancehall and UK bass artist Serocee; and jazz/hip-hop artist Sumochief.
“Other new additions include Sheffield’s Blood Sport who will curate the Tramlines Millennium Gallery Sunday lineup for a second year; 19 year-old singer-songwriter Billie Black and Warp Records signing Lonelady.”
These acts join a bill that already includes The Streets’ Mike Skinner, The Charlatans, Wu-Tang Clan, Buzzcocks, Billy Bragg and more.
