Gilles Peterson, Gerd Janson, Nightmares On Wax (DJ set), Andy Butler (Hercules & Love Affair), Prince Fatty & Horseman, 2 Bad Mice and dozens more now take pride of place on the bill for the Tramlines 2017 after-parties. Curated in association with local promoters Nice Like Rice, Off Me Nut Records, Roots and Wild Live, the latest additions pack a punch of quality house, techno, jungle, disco, grime and everything in between.
With after-party tickets from just £12 + booking fee, you’d be hard pushed to find a better value ticket.
The full Tramlines after-party programme takes over the o2 Academy, The Octagon, Fusion & Foundry and Yellow Arch Studios on Friday 21st July and Saturday 22nd July.
Acts already announced for the genre-busting after-parties include grime MC Bugzy Malone, a DJ set by the flawless Sister Bliss (Faithless), three-time MOBO winner Fuse ODG, garage royalty care of TQD and Artful Dodger, Austrian duo Camo & Krooked, The Streets’ Mike Skinner, drum & bass legends DJ Marky and DJ Zinc and tons more. For those who can’t bear to go home after Tramlines’ daytime live-music programme, the after-parties are a must.
Joining Tramlines for a takeover at Fusion & Foundry (Sheffield University) on Saturday 22 July is the ever-popular Nice Like Rice. Heading up their bill is BBC 6 Music selector and Tramlines favourite Gilles Peterson; the inimitable Nightmares On Wax; Gerd Janson, one of Germany’s most in-demand eclectic talents; Andy Butler, better known as the driving force behind retro-futurist kingpins Hercules & Love Affair, and the Nice Like Rice DJs.
Across the city at Yellow Arch Studios, festival-goers can expect a three-room dose of jungle, grime and bassline. In the Main Room, the brains behind 20Hz Soundsystem – Roots – will team up with Wild Live - the guys behind quality underground parties including Freshen Up and Boom Ting - to present renowned reggae producer Prince Fatty alongside MC royalty Horseman.
Cult label Off Me Nut Records step into the Warehouse (Room 2) to present a floor-shaking party with hardcore breakbeat outfit 2 Bad Mice, while many of the label’s top producers, such as Phatworld and Superior Cornrows will go back-to-back in what will undeniably be a rowdy grime-beat affair!
Over in Room 3 is drum and bass collective Displace, who bring even more beats and basslines to the proceedings with the Displace Crew and resident DJs.
Tickets for the Tramlines after-parties can be purchased for individual nights for £12 plus booking fee, or as a weekend ticket for just £20 plus booking fee, while stocks last.
