Sheffield‘s biggest party returns for its 15th edition later this year, with Tramlines Festival taking place from Friday 21st to Sunday 23rd July at Hillsborough Park. The 2023 event will be headlined by Richard Ashcroft, Courteeners, and Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott, and we have now been treated to the latest additions.
The Open Arms, Tramlines’ very own pub and a hit with festival goers, will return for the third time, hosting the lyricists and spoken word artists for the ‘Speakers Corner’ bill. The stage is curated by former Sheffield Poet, Laureate Otis Mensah, and will include DJ sets organised by one of the city’s cultural hotspots, the Leadmill, including “The Sound – A Celebration of The 1975”, “ABBA Party”, and “Club Tropicana” DJ sets.
Among the latest names added to the bill is the UK’s 2023 Eurovision entrant, Mae Muller, following in the footsteps of Sam Ryder after his impressive performance last year. Ella Henderson, Professor Green, Chappaqua Wrestling, Bilk, and The K’s have also been added, along with a plethora of other talented bands and artists (see full lineup below). Sadly, Beabadoobee has withdrawn from the lineup.
Shaun Williamson’s fan favourite festival experience, Barrioke also returns for 2023, alongside Musical Bingo, Shell Suit Cher Bingo, and Hip Hop Karaoke. Tramlines presents one of the most unique lineups the UK has to offer in terms of the acts on display across the weekend, with Tragedy (Heavy Metal Bee Gees from NYC), The Mariachis and German oompah band, Brasswurst, all confirmed.
There are five stages of music, comedy and performance, including a family friendly area, the best in festival food vendors, craft beer, and vintage clothes stores for those dressing to impress at Tramlines.
