UK rap queen Lady Leshurr leads the final additions plus dancehall duo The Heatwave, who wil perform alongside the likes of The Libertines, Primal Scream, Metronomy, Toots & The Maytals, Kano, The Coral, The Pharcyde and All Saints.

The festival returns to Sheffield from 21 – 23 July

The biggest event in Sheffield’s musical calendar – the annual inner-city music festival Tramlines, which takes place from Friday 21 to Sunday 23 July – will feature UK rap queen Lady Leshurr and dancehall duo The Heatwave.

The latest additions to the bill also include Ms Banks and Our Girl.

This is promised to be Tramlines’ biggest lineup to date.

From just £42 plus booking fee for a weekend ticket, Tramlines remains one of the best value festivals around.

Tramlines is always a highlight in the UK festival calendar and this year is set to be no different, with a new-look festival site exclusively spanning three outdoor arenas and brand-new areas dedicated to emerging talent.

Charming, funny and at the top of her game, Lady Leshurr brings her unmissable, high-energy live show to Sunday’s Main Stage for what promises to be a highlight of 2017’s festival. With her Queen’s Speech series currently at fifty million views on YouTube and counting, the rap talent has sold out shows from New York to Brixton, and attracted the attention of international hip-hop heavyweights like Timbaland, Erykah Badu, and Busta Rhymes.

Dancehall duo The Heatwave are well known for filling dancefloors across the globe, meaning that their appearance in Tramlines’ brand-new Into The Trees area at the Ponderosa Park main stage site on Saturday is sure to help get the party atmosphere in full swing. Local DJ talent from genre-hopping disco obsessive Leroy, hip-hop promoters Thirsty Ear and the crew behind Sheffield’s bass music radio station UK Mondo all join the Into The Trees lineup, with The Heatwave and the already announced Don Letts and The Reflex.

More emerging talent comes from the new PRS Momentum tent, which will take pride of place alongside the newly-reinstated stage in Devonshire Green. Rapper Ms Banks and The Big Moon side-project Our Girl join the bill, which already features hotly-tipped emerging artists like Bossy Love, Flamingods, Mista Silva and Jerry Williams. Local talent is well represented on the new stage too, with Sheffield’s jazz-inspired surf-pop band Katie Pham & The Moonbathers also new to the bill

Tramlines Festival Director Sarah Nulty says:

“We couldn’t be happier with our 2017 lineup. It’s important to us to show off a wide range of musical talent, and we’re delighted to have some of South Yorkshire’s most exciting emerging acts joining the new artists and household names on this year’s bill.”

Earlybird, first release and second release tickets for Tramlines Festival 2017 sold out in record time, but third release weekend tickets are now on sale for just £42 plus booking fee, while stocks last. Tickets can be purchased from

New Home. Big Year.

Tramlines R.I.P. in my humble opinion. The big draw to me was always the choice of venues (Leadmill etc alongside Main outdoor stages) nestled side by side with the fringe and all within easy walking distance of each other. Didn't enjoy last year (partly due to the weather, admittedly) even though some of the music was great. Hadn't decided whether to get tickets again this year or whether to just stick to the fringe but mind made up now.... "Tramlines- Inner City Music" my arse....

Awful decision, too far out of town now!

Just getting further and further away from the centre. Thia used to be a festival for the city to enjoy. Now its just for the organisers to make some coin.

No details of what the festival will look like. No detail of how many stages and where in the park there will be. No confirmation that Hillsborough Park is now the only venue or if not other venues.

Hillsborough? Lol. I only go there if im paid to work or to beat Wednesday UTB

Farewell Folk Forest 😢

“Oh my god it’s so far away from town” - the tram drops you right outside the park and costs about 2 quid. Chill out.

No Peace Gardens stage? 😮

This a one off or a permanent change? Always thought it was ace as an inner city music festival like Live At Leeds. Plus an outdoor thing is open to bad weather ruining it.....

Why change last year's venues ?

Perfect venue in my eyes ponderosa was crap hillsborough Park is big enough to stage a proper festival and true to its name on the tram route

The atmosphere is in town walking around going in different pubs etc. who wants to get on a tram and leave all that ???? Failure

What happened to "inner city music" last few times at pondarosa was far enough.... will not be attending this year... seems more for profit than music promotion. Sad

So effectively a city centre festival turns into a non city centre festival....? Think I'd prefer to go sit in a field in beautiful countryside at some other festival thanks.

Sarah Katie Abbie inconvenient when we need to pop home for tea and rosejam every 2 hours

Never been same since they moved from town. Moving further away. Lost my money

I feel sorry for the ducks in Hillsborogh park lol

Great news for me as I won't have to walk 700 miles uphill to get anywhere 🙂

When is the line up going to be announced??

Great choice ..can't wait

Change != Bad I'm well up for a change to Hillsborough park 👍

Suzie Symonds walking distance for you this year!

I think I already have a ticket????

When does apply to play open?

Frankie Paterson this is what we were on about! 😬
