While the main event takes over Hillsborough Park this Tramlines weekend, the city centre is gearing up to host The Fringe at Tramlines. The Fringe will bring together local acts, music from around the world and street theatre – all for free.
The Fringe Stage at Devonshire Green will present the best ‘made in Sheffield’ acts with some international additions. There'll be the big brassy sound of Jungle Lion, the Latin inspired Mango Rescue Team, homegrown rap talent in the form of Medley and a special performance on Sunday from the One World Choir, compromised of Sheffield-based asylum seekers and refugees. Orchard Square and Barker’s Pool will host some of the UK’s best street entertainers presented by the University of Sheffield, while over in the Peace Gardens there'll be bars and food outlets, an 80s/90s disco, and a helter skelter.
