Outlines 2017 – First Wave Announced!
Last year the fine folk at Tramlines Festival weren’t content with throwing just one massive music bash a year, and so little sister Outlines was welcomed to the family. Offering a dose of festival fun to tide us over ‘til the summer months, and with the likes of Roots Manuva, Blessa, Oscar, Coco and Loyle Carner on the bill, it was a rip-roaring success and team have since had their sights set firmly on round two.
The festival is looking to build on last year’s success and been notched up to a two-day event. Taking place over March 3-4, the usual live hotspots of The Harley, Queens Social Club, Plug and Skate Central will again serve as key venues. Up to 150 genre-hopping acts are set to join the party this year, the likes of Jagwar Ma, The Selecter, Slow Club, The Crookes, Lady Leshurr and Clean Cut Kid.
Jagwar Ma, the Australian psychedelic outfit heading up the bill, have become one of the most in-demand live acts on the touring circuit. Following a summer of sold-out headline gigs across Europe and the US, the trippy guitar-dance purveyors recently released their second album Every Now and Then to critical acclaim.
Established Sheff favourites Slow Club and The Crookes will both take to the stage, and joining them will be a wealth of emerging local talent such as Liberty Ship, Vultures and Blind Saints. As per, there will be a big onus on showcasing the native talent, so artists and band are encouraged to apply for live slots – head to the website for the application details.
While super-early bird offers have already sold out, weekend tickets are available for a mere £15, while stocks last…
