Tramlines 2022: Library Stage and Into the Trees Family Fun Line-up announced
Local organizations Pattern + Push and DINA will host artists on the Library Stage alongside BBC Introducing.
Into the Trees will host fun family attractions including a kids rave, games, arts and crafts and more.
Tickets are now completely sold out for Tramlines – the city’s annual music and comedy festival at Hillsborough Park, Sheffield, this year from Friday to Sunday, July 22-24.
As the festival approaches, organizers have announced Library Stage partnerships with local music projects and venues.
These newly announced acts will join a huge array of music, comedy and poetry over the weekend, including headliners Sam Fender, Kasabian and Madness.
The Library Stage on Friday is hosted by DINA – Sheffield’s innovative arts organization who pride themselves on providing a safe and inclusive event space for absolutely everyone at their site in Fitzalan Square in Sheffield city centre.
Their female-led line-up includes Teah Lewis, The Goddess Collective and a headliner from London’s DIY Punk girl trio Big Joanie. They will also feature Lucy & Hazel, Gum Disease and All Girls Arson Club.
Pattern + Push will take over the Library Stage on Saturday with some of the area’s top rappers and singers. Pattern + Push is a talent contest and mentorship program.
They provide a platform to help emerging talent achieve their goals while encouraging positive, mindful talk. Local grime hero Coco headlines this stage alongside Deuxé.
2021 Apply to Play winner Rumbi Tauro makes a comeback alongside 2022 Pattern + Push winner Sarinity Jones. Also in attendance will be JXK, Ace Gray, Alice Ede, Jay Betts, Laurie Vusolo, Suave, Aziza Jaye, Chozen 1ne, Kun D, Luke Ledwodd, Rainz and Swiftz to complete a stunning showcase of local talent.
On Sunday, BBC Music Introducing will present Old Dirty Brasstards with an Artic Monkeys special.
Tramlines would like to point out that the Arctic Monkeys themselves do not play although their tracks will receive the full horn treatment from this fantastic set.
Local talent will also be represented by Perfectparachutepicture, Malah Palinka, Otis Mensah, Gia Ford and Anya-Lace. This stage will be moderated by BBC Radio Sheffield presenter Christian Carlisle.
Children and families will find a space dedicated to Into the Trees with many new features for 2022.
There will be arts and crafts to try, science shows, a children’s rave and the circus-based antics of The Flying Seagull Project.
The mascots of Sheffield United (Captain Blade) and Sheffield Wednesday (Ozzie Owl) will be hosting a charity penalty shootout, with fantastic prizes up for grabs throughout the weekend.
There will also be spray painting workshops led by local artist Marcus Method where you can try out spray painting in Marcus’ bold and unique style. And as if that weren’t enough, there will also be a carnival and a board games area for healthy family competition!
