With the festival just around the corner, organisers have announced Library Stage partnerships with local music projects and venues .

These recently announced acts will join a huge array of music, comedy and poetry over the weekend including headliners Sam Fender, Kasabian and Madness.

On Friday the Library Stage is curated by DINA - Sheffield’s innovative arts organisation who pride themselves in providing a safe and inclusive event space for absolutely everyone at their venue on Fitzalan Square in Sheffield City Centre.

Their female-led line-up includes Teah Lewis, The Goddess Collective and a headline spot from Big Joanie, London’s female DIY Punk trio. They will also feature Lucy & Hazel, Gum Disease and All Girls Arson Club.

Pattern + Push will be taking over the Library Stage on Saturday with some of the best rappers and singers in the region. Pattern + Push is a talent competition and mentoring programme.

They provide a platform to help emerging talent achieve their goals whilst encouraging positive and conscious lyrics. Local grime hero Coco headlines this stage alongside Deuxé.

2021 Apply to Play winner Rumbi Tauro makes a return alongside the winner of Pattern + Push 2022, Sarinity Jones. Also in attendance will be JXK, Ace Gray, Alice Ede, Jay Betts, Laurie Vusolo, Suave, Aziza Jaye, Chozen 1ne, Kun D, Luke Ledwodd, Rainz and Swiftz to complete a breathtaking showcase of local talent.

On Sunday BBC Music Introducing will present Old Dirty Brasstards with an Artic Monkeys special.

Tramlines would like to make it clear that the Arctic Monkeys themselves are not playing although their tracks will be getting the full brass treatment from this fantastic ensemble.

Also representing local talent will be Perfectparachutepicture, Malah Palinka, Otis Mensah, Gia Ford and Anya-Lace. This stage will be hosted by Radio Sheffield’s BBC Introducing on-air host, Christian Carlisle.

Kids and families will find a dedicated area at Into the Trees with many new additions for 2022.

There will be arts and crafts to try out, science shows, a kids rave and the circus based antics from The Flying Seagull Project.

The mascots from both Sheffield United (Captain Blade) and Sheffield Wednesday (Ozzie Owl) will be hosting a charity penalty shootout, with some fantastic prizes to be won across the weekend.

There will also be spray paint workshops hosted by local artist Marcus Method where you can try out spray painting in Marcus’ bold and unique style. As if that wasn’t enough, there will also be a funfair and a board games area for some healthy family competition!
