The massive music festival takes place at Hillsborough Park next weekend (July 19-21) and everyone in Sheffield will be hoping the sun smiles kindly on us. 

Tramlines 2019 takes place across four stages of music and comedy, features family-friendly area Into The Trees and has the new addition of Speakers’ Corner.

The line-up includes more than 70 acts and big names on the main stage include Friday headliners Two Door Cinema Club, Saturday main act Courteeners, and the finale from Nile Rodgers & Chic.

Sheffield music-lovers will be hoping that the weather forecast will be similar to this year’s Glastonbury Festival as revellers baked in the sunshine. 

In stark contrast, fans at Heaton Park had to contend with the mud and the rain at Parklife Festival but that did little to dampen the Manchester atmosphere. 

Forecasting website, Weather2, has released their long-range predictions and it’s a bit of a mixed bag. 

There’s set to be glorious sunshine on Friday and Saturday evening but heavy rain predicted for sunday morning. 

The majority of the festival is set to be dry though, with temperatures peaking at 19C.
