Dizzee Rascal and Goldie for Sheffield’s Tramlines Festival


Dizzee Rascal, Goldie and Field Music are among the artists confirmed for Sheffield’s Tramlines Festival.

The event, which takes place from Friday 22 July to Sunday 24, will take place across numerous outdoor stages, venues and themed trails all over the city.

Confirmed acts for the eighth year of the festival will see the likes of Young Fathers, Little Simz, C Duncan, Mumdance and Norman Jay all performing.

The 2015 edition was the biggest yet, with capacity increased to 15,000 and over 100,000 festival goers in attendance.

Sarah Nulty, Tramlines director, said: ‘We are really excited to return with Tramlines, for what is now our eighth year. Having Dizzee to headline the Main Stage on Friday will be an incredible way to start the weekend.

‘We listened to feedback from last year and realised people needed more choice when it came to buying tickets to help them catch their favourite acts. So far, the new options have been well received, and early-bird tickets have already sold out. We’ve got some great headliners yet to announce plus a great mix of international and local talent still to come and we’re all looking forward to sharing what is set to be our biggest year yet.’
