Tramlines is a festival for everyone, whether you fancy a bench hangout with a pint and your pals,
some family entertainment to keep the kids occupied, getting sweaty in a mosh pit,
seeing some world-class acts or having a laugh at some top notch comedy – we’ve got you covered.
Each year, we remember the incredible work and passion of Tramlines’ former festival director Sarah Nulty who passed away in 2018. Named in fond memory of her, The Sarah Nulty Main Stage is set against the glorious green back drop of Parkwood Springs Hills and features a varied array of performances from incredible acts across the weekend.

Afternoons at T’Other stage are sure to be filled with back to back laughter, featuring performances from comedy legends such as Jason Manford, Russell Kane, Joel Dommett, Milton Jones, Ed Byrne, Jo Jo Sutherland and many, many more!

Away from the hustle and the bustle of the main arena, The Library Stage is all about discovery, with a line up that leans to the left and supports emerging talent, while hosting the winner and runners up of our annual Apply to Play competition.
2o23 saw the return of the Pattern + Push takeover, a full day of the best emerging vocal and rap talent from across South Yorkshire on The Library Stage. Pattern + Push is a Northern talent development platform which promotes positivity and empowerment through music.
Presenting to you: Tramlines’ very own pub! All fun and no frills, The Open Arms is the perfect place to grab a pint and discover some something weird and wonderful.
The Open Arms opens with charity performances from local groups such as Under the Stars and is followed by a daily Speakers Corner takeover, featuring some of the UK’s best poets and spoken word artists, all curated by Sheffield’s 2020 Poet Laureate – Otis Mensah.
When the poetry’s over you’ll stumble across a Karaoke session compered by Barry from Eastenders, followed by a round of Musical Bingo and all topped off with a themed club night. It’s the party of the year – trust.
