Tramlines festival has announced its biggest line up to date with The Libertines, Toots and the Maytals and All Saints headlining the inner-city weekender.

This year’s edition of the festival is an exclusively outdoor event, stretched across three of Sheffield’s parks. The Main Stage at Ponderosa will host an array of hip-hop heavy acts including Nadia Rose, Akala and Loyle Carner, who’s become familiar with Sheffield audiences since his set at Tramlines sister-festival, Outlines, last year. They’re joined by Glaswegian rockers Twin Atlantic and electronic outfit Metronomy off the back of their 2016 album Summer 08.

Devonshire Green will be just as loud with indie-rockers We Are Scientists and The Coral as well as up and coming bands Estrons and Cabbage. The Folk Forest, located at Endcliffe Park will offer soothing mid-afternoon music from Blaenavon, Cate Le Bon and Goat Girl.

Last year’s Tramlines included huge performances from George Clinton, Young Fathers and Dizze Rascal along with a wealth of up and coming music. This year’s festival will be held from 21-23 July and tickets can be found here.
