Wu Tang Clan Headline Tramlines 2015
Top of the bill: Wu Tang Clan headline Tramlines 2015.
They’ve only gone and done it again. Following the news that The Charlatans and Basement Jaxx will be taking to the Tramlines stage, the fest has just announced its third and final headliner – the Wu Tang Clan!
This is a band who About.com ranked as the No. 1 greatest hip hop group of all time, who Kris Ex of Rolling Stone called “the best rap group ever”, and who NME hailed as one of the most influential groups of the last ten years – so it’s quite the coup. Expect hits such as C.R.E.A.M. and Gravel Pit with MC royalty RZA and Method Man at the helm.
On the new announcements, Tramlines festival director Sarah Nulty commented:
“We knew we had to pull out something special to follow the likes of Public Enemy and Sister Sledge last year, and we think we’ve done it with 2015’s headliners. We’re really excited to welcome some true legends to the Tramlines stages. As ever, there’s a ton of great breaking talent on this year’s bill too, and we can’t wait for people to tell us about discovering their new favourite band.”
Over 30 new acts have been added to the 2015 bill – including The Streets frontman Mike Skinner and critically-acclaimed DJ/producer Erol Alkan, who join the likes of Sugarhill Gang, Buzzcocks, Melle Mel & Scorpio, Martha Reeves and Billy Bragg.
Weekend tickets are now on sale for £30 from www.tramlines.org.uk.
