Sheffield’s Tramlines Festival have revealed that The Streets, Royal Blood and Richard Ashcroft will be coming to Hillsborough Park this July.
Like every other festival in Britain, Tramlines was forced to undertake a fallow year in 2020. However, unlike many events, it looks set to go ahead this summer. The three-day event moved from various venues littered around the city to Hillsborough Park in 2018, and the non-camping festival holds up to 30,000 music lovers each day.
The Streets top the bill on Friday night, with the likes of The Kooks, DMA’s, Jake Bugg, Alfie Templeman, Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Pale Waves all scheduled to perform on that day too. Meanwhile, Royal Blood headline the Saturday following performances from Blossoms, Mahalia, Little Simz, The Lathums, The Magic Gang and many more.
The festival’s final day will be rounded off by a set from former Verve frontman Richard Ashcroft. Elsewhere on Sunday, Hillsborough Park will stage performances from Dizzee Rascal, Tom Walker, Everything Everything, The Snuts, Holly Humberstone, The Big Moon, among others.
Tim Cleasby, Tramlines Festival Operations Director, has said: “The pandemic has hit us all very hard in a million different ways but the support that Sheffield has already shown us is incredibly humbling for us all. We’re super excited to bring you what I feel is one of our strongest line ups.
“The three main headliners have been on my list for a good while now and we’ve got some brilliant returning friends as well. All this said, we’re very serious about the public’s safety and take our responsibilities regarding COVID very seriously. We’re keeping a close eye on developments and will act accordingly should things change.”
