Tramlines Festival 2016: First Wave Announced!
Tramlines Festival has announced the first wave of acts for this year’s event.
The eclectic early line-up includes the likes of UK grime royalty Dizzee Rascal, Spanish indie rock band Hinds and Mercury Prize winners Young Fathers.
The award-winning inner-city music festival, now in its eighth year, welcomed over 100,000 festival-goers to the Steel City last year, going on to win awards for ‘Best Medium-Sized Festival’ and ‘Best City Festival’ at the Festival Baby Awards, and receiving a nomination for ‘Best Metropolitan Festival’ at the UK Festival Awards. Tramlines Festival Director Sarah Nulty told Exposed: “We are really excited to return with Tramlines. Having Dizzee to headline the Main Stage on Friday will be an incredible way to start the weekend.”
Venues on the festival circuit this year include the O2 Academy, The Leadmill, The Night Kitchen, the Cathedral, Foundry, Fusion, and The Octagon Centre, The Harley, Hope Works, City Hall, Queens Social Club and Yellow Arch Studios.
