Following a year’s meticulous planning and eager anticipation, the city of Sheffield is poised once more to host the Tramlines Festival 2011. Over 3 (hopefully scorchio) summer days, Tramlines 2011 will witness a staggering 200+ bands performing LIVE across 70 stages. The FREE music festival conceived in 2009 aims to “showcase the amazing, diverse music” that the Steel City has to offer. This year Tramlines expects to haul a record 175,000 people into the city. Come and join in the celebrations!

When’s it kicking off? Thursday 21st (although officially) Friday 22nd – Sunday 24th July.

Where’s the buzz? Main Stage located on Devonshire Green… Multiple destinations along Division Street… Corporation, The Shakespeare, O2 Academy, Leadmill, The Harley, University of Sheffield and many more pubs, bars, nooks, crannies, pavement…

Who’s playing? Guillemots kick off proceedings with a cheeky set on Thursday evening at Leadmill… The Futureheads… Los Campesinos!… Dananananaykroyd… Toddla T… Ms Dynamite… Ash close the Main Stage on Sunday.

What’s new? This year’s event will be sponsored by Nokia… The University of Sheffield will become the Dance Village… The 2010 inaugural Blues & Ale Trail running from Shalesmoor, Kelham Island to the University Arms now has a Main Stage… Heeley City Farm will showcase a new folk/community event on the fringes of the city with beer tents, stalls and more…

What types of music? Everything… Reggae, blues, folk, rock, indie, pop, r&b, jazz, rap, dance…

Just popular bands? No… local talent, unsigned acts, acoustic sets, buskers… Tramlines truly has something for everyone.
