No other event makes its mark on the city and brings people together quite like Tramlines.
For its eleventh edition in 2019 the festival will bring iconic headliners, exciting new talent and smashing local acts to one Sheffield's most picturesque green spaces: Hillsborough Park.
Headliners for Tramlines 2019 are Two Door Cinema Club, Courteeners and Nile Rodgers and Chic. Also on the bill so far are Manic Street Preachers, Johnny Marr, Rag 'N' Bone Man, Happy Mondays, The Futureheads, Annie Mac, Drenge, Doves, and more.
As well as all the music, the festival will once again feature a comedy stage hosted by the Leadmill, with acts including Phill Jupitus, Shappi Khorsandi and Reginald D. Hunter.
Nestled between trees and twinkling lights, the family-friendly Into the Trees area returns for 2019, with a pop-up cinema, woodland workshops, a mini beach, and a circus tent where kids can learn how to talk the tight wire or juggle. The Flying Seagull Project will be there with their weird and wacky shows involving a unicycle runway, quiz shows, a kids comedy club, magic, and an end of day parade. Jurassic Partys will bring roarsome dinsoaur fun, while ‘The Poet’ Jonny Heath will be creating countless smiles from poems and stories written on his typewriter. By night, Into the Trees becomes a party for the older crowd, with a retro disco, house and world music, and a Club Tropicana beach party.
You don't need to worry about going hungry at the festival either, as some of the best street food traders around will be wheeling their trucks into the park. There'll be vegan wurst from Get Wurst, the much-loved Pieminister, Proove Pizza, and some of the finest street food stalls from Kelham Island's Cutlery Works.
On top of all the fun in Hillsborough Park, there's also a whole host of after parties and fringe events to get involved with – more details soon.
