Tramlines Festival – a great weekend planned for 21st – 23rd July, 2023

Some of the north’s finest artists are set to descend on Sheffield for the return of Tramlines Festival later this month.

The popular event will see thousands of revellers take to Hillsborough Park between 21 and 23 July for South Yorkshire’s biggest annual music party.

There’s a whole host of top quality artists and comedians who will be gracing the fields this year – all of whom promise to make a two-hour journey from Birmingham to the Steel City certainly worthwhile. 

This year’s headliners will be Richard Ashcroft of The Verve, Manchester indie favourites Courteeners and ex-Housemartins and The Beautiful South singer Paul Heaton.

While other notable acts performing include Bloc Party, DMA’s, Black Honey, Kate Nash, Katy B, The Enemy and much, much more.

The family-friendly non-camping festival sits on a backdrop of Sheffield Wednesday Football Club’s historic Hillsborough Stadium and promises something for all punters.

Whether it’s some light entertainment to keep the kids occupied or getting sweaty in a mosh pit is your bag – Tramlines will have you covered. 

From the Sarah Nulty’s Main Stage – named in tribute to former director of the event who sadly died aged 36, to The T’Other Stage – a Yorkshire spin off to Glastonbury’s famous venue, more than a hundred acts are on the bill across the festival’s six stages. 

Some of our favourites featuring on the line-up include Blossoms, who will be fresh from their secret set at Glastonbury with Rick Astley, and noughties pop sensations the Sugababes, who are set to close the T’Other Stage on the Sunday night.

If you’re keen to check out the next big thing, Sheffield’s famous music venue and nightclub The Leadmill curates its own stage where the likes of Spector will be joined by some of the industry’s most up-and-coming alternative artists.

And in the comedy tent laughs will be aplenty; you can expect to see stand-ups including political satirist Jonathan Pie as well as Live at the Apollo legend Omid Djalili. 

All sound good to you? Well… the event had sold-out, but Tramlines have just released some extra resale tickets and for £140 for a weekend or £60 for a day – you can’t really knock the value. 

Just be quick – organisers say availability is “extremely limited”. We hope to see you in the fields!
