Sam Fender, Kasabian And Madness All Take To Hillsborough Park

Tramlines Festival Returns To Hillsborough Park, Sheffield from Friday 22nd to Sunday 24th July! 

Tramlines Festival has announced it’s first wave of acts for 2022, after having been selected for a Government Pilot for live events earlier this year. The 2022 festival is looking to be one of the biggest and best yet, with some of the biggest names in the industry already taking a spot on the bill, and many more are sure to come. The festival is set to run for 3 days in the peak of the British summer, and they’ve gone big with the headline acts. Sam Fender closes day one, Kasabian take the middle spot, and then it’s in the hands of Madness to close out what is sure to be one of the greatest festivals of the 2022 calendar.

Further down the bill, the likes of Do Nothing, Yard Act, Goa Express, and Sheafs are just a few of the fantastic upcoming bands being given a spot at Sheffield’s biggest music festival. Some rising stars are in with the indie heavyweights in the middle of the bill too, with The Wombats, The Vaccines and James making appearances alongside Self Esteem, Inhaler and Sports Team.

Alongside this first wave lineup announcement, Tramlines also reveals that Day tickets will go on sale on Friday 12th November at midday. 75% of Weekend tickets have already sold so only a very limited number remain. Day tickets for Tramlines are priced from £50 and Weekend tickets at £130(both plus booking fees) and can be purchased alongside VIP ticket options from www.tramlines.org.uk.

Timm Cleasby, Tramlines Operations Director said, “After the amazing spirit that everyone brought to Tramlines 2021 and how the team delivered an amazing festival in challenging times, we’re all back working hard to make 2022 better than ever. I honestly can’t wait to be back in the park and having a blast with Sheffield again. There are so many great bands on the 2022 lineup. Those I’m really looking forward to catching are Sigrid, Kasabian, The Coral, Orla Gartland and James, and there’s some great Sheffield artists that I’ve been looking forward to seeing for a while too, the amazing Self Esteem, the return of Little Man Tate and our friends, Reverend and The Makers to name a few. Then to finish off the party, Madness will be sending everyone dancing back to their house…Tramlines 2022 is gonna go off.”

A Tramlines lineup wouldn’t be complete without a solid injection of Sheffield’s finest. For 2022, crowds can expect homegrown sets from Jon McClure’s Reverend and The Makers; Self Esteem (aka Rebecca Taylor formerly of Slow Club); Little Man Tate in their highly anticipated return since their farewell in 2009; and arguably one of most attended performances of the entire Tramlines weekend, The Everly Pregnant Brothers who’ll bring the power house of parody, charm and sing-a-long vibes.

Plenty of up and coming local acts have also been revealed including Bedroom High Club, Luxury Goods, Sheafs and August Charles. Bedroom High Club are a 4-piece new age indie band who have become firm Tramlines favourites since debuting in 2019. Luxury Goods are the new incarnation of LIO and have just announced a Leadmill show in December whilst Sheafs are riding high following their debut EP ‘Vox Pop’ in 2020. August Charles is a fantastic new vocalist from Doncaster who made his Tramlines debut last year as a winner of the ‘Apply to Play’ competition.

This is just the first wave of talent set to perform at Tramlines 2022. Festival-goers should keep an eye out for further lineup announcements, plus further announcements from across the festival site including, comedy and cabaret, family fun, fabulous food and drink offerings and much more.
