Tramlines returns to Sheffield from 21st-23rd July at Hillsborough Park, with headliners confirmed as Richard Ashcroft, Courteeners and Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbot. Now, the festival has announced an opportunity for emerging talent at this year’s event.

The ‘Apply to Play’ scheme has been a popular feature of Tramlines over the years, and it has been enhanced for the 2023 edition.

A shortlist of artists will be narrowed down from the open application process, before the public vote for their favourites. The overall winner will receive:
£500 rehearsal and recording credits at the renowned Pirate Studios
Feature interview in Exposed Magazine
Paid slots at TruckVictorious, and Tramlines
Performance at an industry showcase event – The Social

Operations Director, Timm Cleasby commented: “Local music and new acts have always been a key feature of the festival. It’s always such a privilege to feature acts who then go on to achieve great things and we must continue to use the platform that Tramlines provides to support and nourish local music. I am excited to see which acts blow us away this year.”

Runners up will receive a paid slot at Tramlines and £100 credit for Pirate Studios. Full details on how to apply can be found on the Tramlines website –
