Funk band George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic will be main stage co-headliners on Saturday, July 23, when over 20 musicians will appear on stage.

Elsewhere, indie trio The Enemy will headline the Leadmill on Friday, July 22 in what will be one of their very last shows, following a recent announcement that the band will split after their autumn tour.

The award-winning Tramlines Festival transforms the city centre into a huge festival site each year, using four outdoor spaces and 15 venues to showcase a mix of established names and brand-new artists - attracting approximately 100,000 music lovers.

Tramlines takes place from Friday 22 July to Sunday 24 July in Sheffield, and weekend tickets are now available from www.tramlines.org.uk.
