Hawley Helps Close Tramlines

One of Sheffield’s favourite sons, Richard Hawley, helped bring Tramlines 2010 to a triumphant close on Sunday as he joined headliners Echo & The Bunnymen on stage for an epic finale to the free music festival.

The annual event, celebrating its second year, attracted over 100,000 to Sheffield city centre – not to mention a host of big names in the world of music. Highlights on the main stage on Saturday included Eliza Doolittle, Craig David, Professor Green and headliner Tinchy Stryder, whilst the Sunday brought with it fine turns from city acts such as Lords Of Flatbush and Hiem alongside crowd favourites Mystery Jets.
Down the road at the Exposed New Music Stage (outside the City Hall), fans were treated to the likes of The Twilight Sad, Blood Red Shoes, Chapel Club, Rolo Tomassi and stage closers Gallows. Touted as an ‘urban Galstonbury, over 50 venues took part in this year’s party. Other highlights included Toddla T and Annie Mac performing to a packed out Octago, Focus at The Leadmill, and Dum Dum Girls at The Harley. Head to our reviews section for more.
