Tramlines announce official after-parties
Taking over the Steel City once again, last month Tramlines Festival announced a whopping line-up with The Libertines at the helm of the inner-city music festival, taking place from Friday 21 to Sunday 23 July.
Joining them will be the likes of ska legends Toots and The Maytals and R&B group All Saints on the Ponderosa Main Stage. The ninth annual festival will also feature Metronomy, The Coral, The Pharcyde, Twin Atlantic, Cabbage, Loyle Carner and more yet to be announced.
While the day time festivities will be outdoor only this year at Ponderosa Park, Devonshire Green and The Folk Forest at Endcliffe Park, the nightlife leg of the event will see clubbing spots around the city hosting new after-parties events.
On Friday 21, the O2 Academy will feature TQD (Royal-T, DJ Q and Flava D), Bugzy Malone, Artful Dodger, Barely Legal and more. Fuse ODG head the bill on Saturday and The Street’s Mike Skinner will make a return. Radio 1 Xtra DJ and Roll Deep cornerstone DJ Target, Gotsome, Cause & Affect, Coco and Donaeo will also take to the stage.
The University of Sheffield’s Octagon, Fusion & Foundry venues will host more after-parties on Friday and Saturday. Festival-goers will experience Sister Bliss and Kideko on Friday, with Camo & Krooked, DJ Zinc and drum and bass DJ Marky appearing on Saturday.
Sarah Nulty, Tramlines’ Festival Director, said: “We love to watch the whole of Sheffield coming out to party and the after-parties mean that music-lovers can keep dancing for the whole weekend.”
Weekend passes are available from £38, plus booking fee. After-parties tickets for individual nights available for £12 or as a weekend ticket for £20, plus booking fee and while stocks last.
