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 www.tramlines.org.uk

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!
