Tramlines music festival is celebrating its landmark 10th birthday with a specially brewed ale and a limited edition of another Sheffield made classic Henderson’s Relish.
In celebration of its roots and to mark a decade as the one of the UK’s biggest inner-city music festivals, today bosses announced the two collaborations with fellow Sheffield independents that are set to make the mouth water.
TICKETS: Stereophonics, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds and Craig David’s TS5 are headliners at this year's Tramlines - Friday to Sunday, July 20 to 22 - on a new site at Hillsborough Park. Full details below. Weekend tickets are £79 plus booking fee at www.tramlines.org.uk.
In association with Abbeydale Brewery – one of Sheffield’s oldest family run-breweries - Tramlines has launched an exclusive birthday beer, available both at the festival itself and from today in bars and cities beyond.
Further celebrating its Sheffield roots, Tramlines has teamed up with the city’s famous Henderson’s Relish, to feature a limited-edition label that celebrates the 10th anniversary.
Henderson’s is donating all its profits to the Sheffield S6 Foodbank charity. The special bottle of Henderson’s Relish is now available in independent retailers and from the Henderson’s Relish website www.hendersonsrelish.com.
Proud of its fellow Sheffield-based businesses, Tramlines said it was only right that it teamed up with the likes of Abbeydale Brewery and Henderson’s to mark the milestone event.
The ‘Tramlines Session IPA’, brewed by Abbeydale Brewery, is now available in keg, cask and can across bars and independent bottle shops in Sheffield and nationwide, including Manchester and Leeds.
It’s also vegan friendly so has a natural haze. It will available from the Tramlines Festival craft beer bar over the festival weekend.
The ale is described as an eminently quaffable 3.8% session IPA, single hopped with Galaxy for clean citrus flavours and a pop of passionfruit. Light and easy going, and perfect for drinking in the sunshine.
Dan Baxter, Sales Director at Abbeydale said: “Tramlines is always a highlight of the year when it comes to shouting about all things Sheffield and we’re proud to have been involved in a number of their ten festivals.
"Celebrating our city, its community spirit, and our independent businesses are some of our core values as a brewery, and the fact that Tramlines shares these makes it an easy relationship to build. We’re looking forward to sharing a few beers with the Tramlines team over the festival!”
Henderson’s Relish general manager, Matt Davies, said: “We are celebrating 10 years of great music at Tramlines in Sheffield and raising money to help people in our city who are in crisis.”
Money raised from 'Hendo's' sales will go to The Sheffield S6 Foodbank charity, based at St Thomas' Church on Gilpin Street, providing emergency food and support to local people who are referred in crisis.
The charity serves more than 5,000 people and uses 70 tonnes of food every year across its four locations in Sheffield. Part of a city and nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, it works to combat poverty and hunger.
Timm Cleasby, Tramlines Festival Operations Director added: “We are proud of our Sheffield heritage and wanted our 10th edition to showcase all the great things about our city, not just musically but also the amazing food and drink brands founded here.”
The tenth edition of Tramlines Festival is special one, taking place from Friday to Sunday, July 20 to 22 on a new site at Hillsborough Park.
Now a greenfield festival held in one location, it features its biggest line up yet. Acts include Stereophonics, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, Craig David’s TS5, Clean Bandit, Blossoms, De La Soul, Milburn, Jake Bugg, Shed Seven, Everything Everything, Reverend and The Makers, Tokio Myers, The Sherlocks, Stefflon Don, Mystery Jets, Red Faces, Bang Bang Romeo and many more.
The new set up features four stages, a debut comedy lineup - Henning Wehn, John Shuttleworth, Bethany Black to name a few - pop-up cinema, an expanded ‘Into The Trees’ family area, Sheffield’s finest breweries and eateries, and of course, the city’s breaking musical talent. It’s going to be one massive party for Sheffield.
Year on year, Tramlines remains one of the largest and most popular inner-city music festivals in the country. Its new home is just 13 minutes from the city centre by tram meaning it remains as accessible as before.
