Acts announced for the Fringe at Tramlines
The Fringe is a celebration of Sheffield as a diverse, welcoming and vibrant city.
As anticipation builds ahead of the 10th anniversary of Tramlines, details have been announced for the Fringe at Tramlines event, taking place in the centre of the Steel City.
Organised by Sheffield City Council and Sheffield BID, The Fringe will bring live music, theatre and film screenings to the city centre during the weekend of 21 – 22 July.
Devonshire Green will be taken over by The Fringe Stage, which will feature a Saturday line-up curated by Sheffield’s Papa Al, whilst Sunday will see Live Core Events bring an array of young and upcoming talent.
Papa Al said: “After nine great years in the Peace Gardens we’ve moved up to the dizzy heights of Devonshire Green. My Saturday programme will feature a mostly Sheffield based line-up with a distinctly global flavour.
“Performing on the day will be rappers, dancers and some fantastic bands. There’s so much exciting music being created in Sheffield and it’s not just indie bands, I can’t wait to see the stage in full effect in July.”
Diane Jarvis, Sheffield BID manager, said: “The Fringe at Tramlines is showcasing Sheffield musicians and giving local, upcoming acts a platform to reach new audiences. With line-ups featuring bands which take inspiration from around the world, The Fringe is a celebration of Sheffield as a diverse, welcoming and vibrant city.”
The Peace Gardens will be transformed into an open air street theatre, including a street performance of The Boulders – a fusion of dance, parkour and bouldering presented by Professor Vanessa Toulmin from the University of Sheffield.
