By Saturday, Sheffield will have well and truly settled into the festival: we’re picturing dancing in the sunshine, drink in one hand and the other in the air as Kasabian headline the event. The English rock band have had us losing our voices at festivals since their formation in the late 90s and we’re sure Tramlines will be no different. Expect bangers like Fire, You’re In Love With A Psycho, Shoot The Runner and other classic indie-rock tunes that span through the decades all evening long.

The Vaccines, who have made many a festival performance over the past five years, will be warming up the crowd with summertime favourites, If You Wanna, Wetsuit, Post Break-Up Sex and All My Friends Are Falling In Love and more. Norwegian singer Sigrid will also be bringing electro-pop to the main stage with a colourful performance of her album, Sucker Punch.

The full line-up for Saturday includes: Kasabian, The Vaccines, Sigrid, Little Man Tate, Self Esteem, Inhaler, Sam Ryder, Alfie Templeman, Lottery Winners, Kawala, Just Mustard, Crawlers, Bleach Lab, Swim School, Sheafs, Pixey and Every Pregnant Brothers.

Line-up: Sunday 24 July

We all know how Sundays look at a festival: you’re either still hyped up from the night before or lethargically fighting to postpone the looming post-festival hangover, but it’s nothing a bacon barm and a Berocca can’t sort out. The tunes on Sunday are just as lively, so make sure you save your energy for 70s icons from the ska band, Madness. Expect old school tunes like Our House, It Must Be Love and an unmissable performance of Baggy Trousers in performance that will be perfect for all ages.

Preceding Madness will be The Wombats, who will be offering ample opportunity to dance to Joy Division during an excitable set of hits spanning from Greek Tragedy to 1996. Also performing as one of the final day headliners is Becky Hill. The former The Voice contestant will be taking time out from her residency at Ibiza Rocks to perform at Tramlines, we’re expecting to hear Only Honest on the Weekend from start to finish, as well as soulful performances of pop hits.

The full Sunday line-up includes: Madness, The Wombats, Becky Hill, Reverend & The Makers, Kelis, The Coral, Sports Team, Scouting for Girls, Yard Act, Elvana, Do Nothing, The Goa Express, April, Bedroom High Club and Luxury Goods.
