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.
