Johnny Marr, Annie Mac and Drenge join Tramlines 2019 line-up
The second wave of acts for this year’s Tramlines Festival has been released, with Drenge, Johnny Marr, Annie Mac and Tom Grennan joining headliners Nile Rodgers and Chic, The Courteeners and Two Door Cinema Club for the July bash.
Joe Carnall Jr’s solo project Good Cop Bad Cop is also added to the bill, along with Futureheads, October Drift and Blackwaters.
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 Cleasby 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.”
