Tramlines 2016 Vital Info

 Tramlines weekend is fast approaching with the whole city transformed into one big festival site. Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the big weekend:


For those of you slow off the mark, you can still bag a full weekend Tramlines ticket, while stocks last. Due to popular demand the team have made a limited number of day tickets available along with Saturday night tickets for £20. Head to to buy yours.


You must exchange your tickets for a wristband before entering any venue or stage. This can only be issued from the wristband exchange point selected at the time of booking.  All tickets bought from Party for the People, Ticket Arena, Skiddle or Festiticket and all Carers Passes can only be collected from Sheffield City Hall.


Opening times for the 3 wristband exchanges:

City Hall

Thurs 21st July: 4pm – 9pm

Friday 22nd July: 12pm – 11pm

Saturday 23rd July: 11am – 11pm

Sunday 24th July: 12pm – 5pm

Ponderosa (Main Stage)

Friday 22nd July: 4pm – 9.30pm

Saturday 23rd July: 11am – 9.30pm

Sunday 24th July: 12pm – 8pm

Folk Forest

Saturday 23rd July: 11.30am – 7pm

Sunday 24th July: 11.30am – 7pm

Wristbands can only be collected in person. You won’t be able to collect wristbands on behalf of anyone else, even if you bought their tickets for them.

You will have to wear your wristband.

Day wristbands do not need to be collected on the specific day of the ticket. For example, a Saturday wristband can be collected on Friday.

City centre parking is limited and there is no parking at the Main Stage at Ponderosa Park – any cars found illegally parked will be towed. Our recommendation is that you use the Supertram, they’ve teamed up with Tramlines to offer a festival explorer day ticket for £3, allowing unlimited travel within the festival area (City Centre to Nunnery Square, Granville Road and Infirmary Road). These tickets can be purchased from the wristband exchange points.

If you’re driving into Sheffield from out of town, please use the Supertram’s Park and Ride scheme.

Walking Route

The Main Stage at Ponderosa Park is a short walk from the city centre. There is a clearly signposted route from the city centre and from the Shalesmoor tram stop. Check out this handy video made by Tramlines for all you need to know:

Our main stage is located in a residential area; make sure that this is respected when leaving, particularly at night.

Tramlines also operate a zero tolerance towards discrimination of any kind. If you experience or witness something that you feel is inappropriate, make sure you alert a steward or onsite security guard.
