Tramlines, Sheffield’s award-winning inner-city festival, has unveiled a stack of new talent for the Saturday instalment of its official after-parties, which will take place at Fusion & Foundry and Yellow Arch Studios on Saturday 22nd July.

A host of leading DJ talent has been added to the bill, including Gilles Peterson, Gerd Janson, Nightmares On Wax (DJ set), Andy Butler (Hercules & Love Affair), Prince Fatty & Horseman, 2 Bad Mice and dozens more.

Curated in association with local promoters Nice Like Rice, Off Me Nut Records, Roots and Wild Live, the latest additions to the Tramlines after-parties pack a punch of quality house, techno, jungle, disco, grime and everything in between, and with tickets from just £12 + booking fee, you’d be hard pushed to find a better value ticket.

The full Tramlines after-party programme takes over Sheffield’s best clubbing spots, the o2 Academy, The Octagon, Fusion & Foundry and Yellow Arch Studios, on Friday 21st July and Saturday 22nd July.

Acts already announced for the genre-busting after-parties include grime MC Bugzy Malone, a DJ set by the flawless Sister Bliss (Faithless), three-time MOBO winner Fuse ODG, garage royalty care of TQD and Artful Dodger, Austrian duo Camo & Krooked, The Streets’ Mike Skinner, drum & bass legends DJ Marky and DJ Zinc and tons more. For those who can’t bear to go home after Tramlines’ daytime live-music programme, the after-parties are a must.

Joining Tramlines for a takeover at Fusion & Foundry (Sheffield University) on Saturday 22 July is the ever-popular Nice Like Rice. The food-loving party crew can be regularly found serving up disco and house all over Sheffield, and for Tramlines they’ve pulled together a wickedly diverse lineup. Heading up the bill is BBC 6 Music selector and Tramlines’ favourite Gilles Peterson; the inimitable Nightmares On Wax; Gerd Janson, one of Germany’s most in-demand eclectic talents; Andy Butler, better known as the driving force behind retro-futurist kingpins Hercules & Love Affair, and the Nice Like Rice DJs.

Across the city at Yellow Arch Studios, festival-goers can expect a large dose of jungle, grime and bassline. In the Main Room, the brains behind 20Hz Soundsystem, Roots, will team up with Wild Live – the brains behind quality underground parties including Freshen Up and Boom Ting – to present renowned reggae producer Prince Fatty alongside MC supremacy Horseman. Cult label Off Me Nut Records step into the Warehouse (Room 2) to present a floor-shaking party with hardcore breakbeat outfit 2 Bad Mice, while many of the label’s top producers, such as Phatworld and Superior Cornrows will go back-to-back in what will undeniably be a rowdy grime-beat affair! Over in room three is drum and bass collective Displace, who bring even more beats and basslines to the proceedings with the Displace Crew and resident DJs.

Tramlines’ Festival Director, Sarah Nulty, commented:

“The Tramlines after-parties are always a highlight. This year, each venue has its own mini-festival vibe. Sheffield’s clubnights have a completely infectious atmosphere, and there’s such an amazing range of promoters and DJs in the city, that you can be guaranteed a great party. The after-party bill is seriously diverse too, so no matter what you’re into, from techno to reggae, you’re going to find it at Tramlines.”

Tickets for the Tramlines after-parties can be purchased from for individual nights for £12 plus booking fee, or as a weekend ticket for just £20 plus booking fee, while stocks last.

Did you catch the Sheffield Sgt. Pepper Project at Tramlines? You can see this fantastic project again at the O2 Academy Sheffield on Sat.

Sheffield Sgt Pepper Project perform Sgt Pepper IN FULL & hits!Nov 25, 7:00pmO2 Academy SheffieldOn 25th November 2017 the Sheffield Sgt. Pepper Project, a 30 Piece Live Band, will perform the album 'Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ in celebration of the album's 50th Anniversary at the O2 Academy in Sheffield.

In 2016 Tramlines Festival invited a group of leading Sheffield musicians to pay tribute to The Beatles’ ‘Revolver’ at that years' festival. A veritable supergroup of musicians from the city was formed, with members of Screaming Maldini, Hey Sholay, Renegade Brass Band, Before Breakfast, Captives On The Carousel, Cats.For.Peru and many others coming together. Wanting to play the music as authentically as possible, some of the city's leading classical and jazz musicians joined on strings, brass and Indian instruments to recreate the sound, and in July 2016 they managed something The Beatles never did and performed the album in full as it originally sounded.

The success of this meant that in 2017 the same group wanted to tackle the seminal masterpiece ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ to celebrate it’s 50th anniversary. Knowing the album's special place in musical history the band the band grew to a 30 piece ensemble, adding more brass, strings, woodwind and even a harp.

They have been joined on vocals by Sheffield legends Steve Edwards and Jack Weston, aka Kid Conventional.

This 30 piece behemoth will bring to life the complexity and brilliance of one of the greatest albums ever written twice this year, once at Tramlines festival and then a special show (with a few other Beatles hits thrown in) on November 25th at the 02 Academy Sheffield. The only thing we don’t have are the Scouse accents - this project belongs to Sheffield!
