Sheffield Hallam at Tramlines

The UK's biggest inner-city music festival has partnered with Sheffield Hallam University for a second year running with a wide range of giveaways and exclusive offers available throughout the weekend.

As well as providing a large number of student volunteers to help ensure that the festival runs smoothly, Sheffield Hallam University will be onsite at the 17,500-capacity Main Stage at Ponderosa, where artists including Kelis, Dizzee Rascal, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Public Service Broadcasting, the Dandy Warhols and Jurassic 5 will perform across three days from 22nd to 24th July.

The Sheffield Hallam University team will be handing out free water bottles, caps and other goodies to ensure that music-lovers can enjoy the festival whatever the weather. Festival-goers can also get involved and get their message seen on the Main Stage big screens by tweeting using #DiscoverTramlines.

Away from the Main Stage, Hallam's Student Union venue, HUBS, will play host to an intimate, unannounced gig by some rising stars from this year's festival bill. Festival-goers can check out Tramlines' Facebook and Twitter to be in with a chance to win tickets.

Sarah Nulty, Tramlines festival director, said:

"We're delighted to be working with Sheffield Hallam University again, and can't wait to reveal the lineup of what is set to be a seriously special intimate gig."

With 788 organisations active in the music sector, Sheffield is rightly renowned as a leading 'music city', made up of 465 active bands, 70 rehearsal rooms and innovation across all music genres.
