Beginners guide to Tramlines 2016

· Tramlines


Tramlines looks set to deliver yet another weekend of star-studded underground music to the Steel City. Over the years this festival really has become a Sheffield institution; previous editions have showcased the likes of Basement Jaxx, Public enemy, Katy B and Wu Tang Clan. With a few big lineups already under its belt it is easy to see how Tramlines has established itself on the UK festival scene and this year's edition is a bargain, costing only£42!

Their website boasts of 'nearly' continuous music, and for the 72 hours that the festival spans (22nd-24th July) Sheffield really is Tramlines' playground; stages are scattered across the city to provide daytime entertainment, whilst some of the city's best nightclubs host artists that'll be playing until dawn (no Penn intended). The Night Kitchen, Hope Works and Yellow Arches Studios will all be opening their doors to festival goers. Taking place in July (officially the UK's sunniest month) this looks like a great excuse to party in God's Own County!

And the best bit? You don't even have to camp...
