The Sheffield festival has announced its first wave of artists for next summer’s event, and there are some cracking acts on the line-up!

The festival, which will take place at Hillsborough Park from Friday 22nd to Sunday 24th July, will see Sam Fender headline on the Friday, Kasabian top the bill on Saturday, and Madness closing the festival with their massive array of hits on the Sunday night. 

Other acts that make up an epic first announcement include The Coral, whose most recent album, Coral Island, landed to critical acclaim earlier this year. Sports Team, Orla Gartland, The Wombats, The Vaccines, James, Shed Seven, and Sheffield’s own Self Esteem are also on the bill.

Self Esteem, aka Rebecca Taylor formerly of Slow Club, said on Twitter: “I love being from Sheffield so this will be FUN.”

The Wombats wrote: “Super excited to be playing Tramlines next summer. What a line up!”

The 13th edition of the festival will play host to five stages of music, art, performance, a soon-to-be announced comedy lineup, and a family friendly area.

Day tickets will go on sale on Friday 12th November at midday, and if you want to head along for all three days, then you need to act fast, because 75 percent of weekend tickets have already sold. 

Day tickets for Tramlines are priced from £50 and weekend tickets at £130 (both plus booking fees) and can be purchased from

This year’s Tramlines made up part of the Government’s Event Research Programme. It was the largest festival in Western Europe to go ahead after lockdown restrictions were eased.

Timm Cleasby, Tramlines Operations Director said: “After the amazing spirit that everyone brought to Tramlines 2021 and how the team delivered an amazing festival in challenging times, we’re all back working hard to make 2022 better than ever. I honestly can’t wait to be back in the park and having a blast with Sheffield again.” 

He added: “Tramlines 2022 is gonna go off.”

There will be more line-up announcements in the coming months, including details regarding the comedy and cabaret acts that will be performing.
