Sheffield’s biggest and best city-based music festival, Tramlines has announced its lineup for the 2020 iteration of the event now in its 12th year.

Headliners for the weekend include The Stone Roses' frontman Ian Brown, Catfish and the Bottlemen, and the UK's iconic Ska act Madness. Another 25 more artists have been unveiled including popular acts such as The Kooks, DMA’s, Pale Waves, Dizzee Rascal, The Hives, The Fratellis, La Roux, The Pigeon Detectives, Easy Life, The Snuts, The Sherlocks, Twisted Wheel, Sister Sledge, The Big Moon, Lucy Spraggan, Sundara Karma, The Magic Gang and more. Festival-goers should keep an eye out for further lineup announcements between now and July.

This year's Tramlines is taking place at the 30,000 capacity Hillsborough Park starting from Friday 31 July and running to Sunday 2 August. Following its first-ever sell-out last year and later being named the Best Metropolitan Festival in the UK, Tramlines is considered one of the fastest-growing festivals in the country.

Over the weekend guests can expect an amazing line-up with upwards of 75 different artists across four stages, as well as live comedy, a pop-up cinema, an expanded family area and an incredible line-up of refreshments.

As ever, Tramlines will be championing emerging as well as local talent and celebrating creativity in the city of Sheffield, with a strong focus on bands and acts from the local area. For more information visit the festival website.
