The Libertines will headline as Tramlines grows to three outdoor stages in 2017
The headliners and meat of the Tramlines 2017 lineup has been announced for the festival’s first year as an entirely outdoor event.
The Libertines will headline the Sheffield festival alongside bands including Twin Atlantic, Cabbage and The Coral.
New urban star Loyle Carner and a sprawl of new and emerging talents will also appear across three days in July.
Perhaps the bigger news for 2017, however, is that Tramlines will now be an outdoor event.
Three stages – at Ponderosa Park, Devonshire Green and Endcliffe Park – will feature bands in a move to increase the festival’s size and the quality of the bands on show.
Previously Tramlines had featured one somewhat remote outdoor main stage and a lineup of venues around the city, like the metropolitan festivals popular in the spring.
Outlines Festival – the new music baby sister of Tramlines – still does this, in March this year.
The lineup announcement, headlined by The Libertines, also included the less eclectic name of All Saints.
Music fans will find more joy in the announcement of Goat Girl, The Magic Gang, Estrons, Spring King, Blaenavon and We Are Scientists.
Tramlines takes place from 21-23 July this year. Tickets are on sale now, presently priced at £38 for an early bird.
