The line-up has been announced for Tramlines Festival, which takes place in the heart of Sheffield on 22-24 July.

As befits a festival held in an inner-city environment, Tramlines has a distinct urban bias to its line-up. Dizzee Rascal is to headline the event, while elsewhere on the bill you can find Goldie, Toddla T, Norman Jay, Pinch B2B Mumdance, Young Fathers and reggae legend Dawn Penn, as well as a host of indie, rock and pop acts.

The festival has a capacity of 15,000, but last year's event saw over 100,000 people come and go over the course of the three days to check out the likes of Basement Jaxx, Sugarhill Gang and Martha Reeves.

Festival director Sarah Nulty said: "We are really excited to return with Tramlines for what is now our eighth year. Having Dizzee to headline the Main Stage on Friday will be an incredible way to start the weekend."


Tickets for Tramlines 2016 are available now. A full weekend tickets costs £42, while individual Daytime and Night-Time tickets for each day cost £23 and £20 respectively (or just £5 for the Sunday night). For full details, hit up www.tramlines.org.uk
