Just when you thought there wasn’t any space on the schedule to add any more artists, Tramlines has released even more names for Sheffield’s biggest party.
The three-day festival will be back at Hillsborough Park in Sheffield between 21 and 23 July this year.
Eurovision entrant Mae Muller will follow in Sam Ryder’s footsteps and perform on the Saturday of the festival, with the likes of Professor Green, The K’s, Bilk, Bonnie Kemplay, The Scottish Flys, Aziza Jaye, Alice Ede, Sarinity Jones and Kid Blu3 all taking up the remaining slots throughout the three day fest.
Ella Henderson will replace Beebadoobe and Shaun William’s Barrioke will return to The Open Arms for what’s usually known as one of the biggest crowds of the weekend – and that’s just the beginning.
The Open Arms is also host to the ‘Speakers Corner’, a unique spot to find some of the coolest lyricists, with insightful poetry and spoken word artists taking to the stage all weekend long, as well as tribute acts like The Sound – A Celebration of the 1975 and ABBA Party.
40,000 music lovers and families will pile into Hillsborough Park each day of Tramlines 2023, ready for a weekend of music, art, comedy and performance across five stages, plus a family friendly area packed with things to do, festival food, bespoke craft beer and ale, vintage clothes stores, and roaming entertainment.
The Friday night will be headlined by Richard Ashcroft, with Courteeners taking the main spot on Saturday as part of their monumental year, which saw the band’s debut album reach number one 15 years after its initial release.
The infallible duo of Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott will close Tramlines 2023 on the Sunday evening.
The diverse festival brings together artists from the worlds of rock, pop, indie and alternative, with big-name bands and up-and-coming musicians rubbing shoulders on the same bill.
Since 2009, Tramlines has been proud to offer a platform to breaking and emerging talent, this year backing breakthrough acts like Stone, The Moly Wallopers, Primaqueen, Jetski, Franz Von, Amaroun, Deadletter, Lizzie Esau, Rumbi Tauro, and Deuxe.
Of course, it wouldn’t be Tramlines without an injection of Sheffield’s finest, Reverend and The Makers, who’ll bring the crowd pleasers as well as teasers from the new album, plus a band who pull in one of the biggest crowds of the weekend for their hilarious spoof covers, The Everly Pregnant Brothers.
