23-25 July 2010
Our biggest musical weekend of the year, Sheffield music city, will soon be upon us. And the main part of that weekend will once again be the Tramlines festival.
Last year’s Tramlines was really good. The atmosphere around town was pretty special and even if you aren’t a music fan, it is worth popping down the the city centre over the weekend just to get a feel for what is going on.
As well as the big acts on the main stage, there are lots of smaller events happening at venues all over the city. The great thing is that it is a free festival and you do not need tickets for events. You may have to queue up to get in to some venues or areas, but I think the plan is to have a one-in-one-out policy this year.
There have been various announcements regarding the line-up, and apparently there will be more news about who is playing on Monday.
For now, I’ve listed some of the information sources for the latest festival information:
Tramlines website. Should include full listings

Anyone know if they are producing a paper brochure/programme this year?
