Chic, Courteeners and Two Door Cinema Club to headline Tramlines
Tramlines have released the first wave of acts for this year’s festival, including headliners Chic (w/Nile Rodgers), Courteeners and Two Door Cinema Club.
Joining the headliners on the main stage are legendary Welsh rockers Manic Street Preachers, post-Britpop Manchester trio Doves and Rag ‘n’ bone Man. Shame, Miles Kane, Everly Pregnant Brothers, Lewis Capaldi, Reverend and the Makers, Happy Mondays and Peter Hook and the Light have also been confirmed to be on the bill for the Hillsborough Park bash.
The festival celebrated its 10 year anniversary last year with a move to the 40,000 capacity Hillsborough Park and a load of triumphant sets, including a special show from Saturday night’s headliner Noel Gallagher and his High Flying Birds. The festival also introduced a comedy stage for the first time in its history, as well as the emerging talent-focused Library Stage and the Reverend Jon McClure-curated Leadmill stage.
Tramlines operations director, Timm Cleabsy said: “Following on from the amazing party that was our tenth birthday, we’ve been working hard to make the festival even better and to find artists that we’re excited about. I think we have some great artists this year that span generations. Courteeners, Chic, Rag’n’Bone Man, The Manics, Miles Kane are all on my must-see list and there are more to come too, including, as usual, some great Sheffield favourites and new talent. I can’t wait it’s going to be awesome and I hope everyone will join us for Sheffield’s Biggest Party.”
