Plus Guardian One To Watch Tom Grennan who headlines the Leadmill Stage on Sunday at Tramlines as part of 'The Reverend Jon McClure presents’ lineup, with his unique “polished pop-soul with a wideboy touch”.
The much-loved Sheffield band, Everly Pregnant Brothers, will also play with their ukuleles and a lethal line in lyrics with covers of anything from Coldplay to Kings of Leon. This must be seen to be believed!
For its 10th year, Tramlines remains dedicated to showcasing breaking talent over its genre spanning lineup. Further highlights include Rae Morris, a major label singer/songwriter whose second album ‘Someone Out There’ has produced singles like ‘Reborn’ and ‘Dot It’ and confirms she is one of the most accomplished talents in her field; indie-pop stars Teleman, indie-rock trio Little Comets, cult shoegaze and girl pop combo Black Honey, London-based alt blues/rock band, Palace, the high octane live duo Honeyblood, international psych explorers Flamingods, and the ambitious and hotly tipped local band King No-One.
Year on year, Tramlines remains one of the largest and most popular inner-city music festivals in the country. Its new home – licensed for up to 40,000 people - is just 13 minutes from the city centre by tram meaning it remains as accessible as before. The larger space can accommodate even more music lovers and can offer a wider range of world class headliners as well as plenty of exciting emerging acts and lots of great entertainment for all the family to enjoy.
