Tram raider!

Have your say

HE’S an architect of the airwaves, cool radio’s man of the moment hailed by many as the most exciting new voice in broadcasting.

And Sheffield’s Toddla T is one of the key faces of the festival that will take over Sheffield this weekend.

Among the original brains behind the first Tramlines in 2009, Radio 1 regular Toddla T is now part of the furniture on the nation’s airwaves as well as one of the world’s most demanded Djs.

With a new album due out next month, the Park Hill party-maker gathers some of his musical pals for the dance highlight of Tramlines, tomorrow at Sheffield University.

Tramlines got under way last night with a handful of warm-up gigs, but the action kicks off in earnest tonight as more than 70 venues begin hosting some 800 performances from hundreds of acts from the city and beyond.

Outside, indoors, on buses, in parks, city squares, clubs, pubs and yards – not to mention impromptu busking on city pavements... almost every space in central Sheffield will be touched by the Tramlines bug in the next 72 hours.
