Tramlines returns for its 10th birthday party!


Sheffield’s longest-running city music festival Tramlines returns for the festival’s 10th anniversary between Friday 20 – Sunday 22 July.

To celebrate ten years of Tramlines, the festival will be held at its new home at Hillsborough Park. With the biggest line up-to-date which goes beyond the music to include the first - ever comedy stage, a pop-up cinema, an expanded ‘Into The Trees’ family area and a brand new Leadmill Stage to champion local talent - this year is set to be a big one. 

Festival organisers have pulled out all the stops with over 70 artists across four stages including headliners Noel Gallagher’s High-Flying Birds, Stereophonics and Craig David’s TS5 and many more supporting acts!

Devonshire Green, Barkers Pool and Peace Gardens are just a few of the locations where you can expect music, entertainment and food and drink. Use our Journey Planning tools to plan your journey.
