There are two entrances to Tramlines:
Penistone Rd Entrance
Middlewood Rd Entrance
As Tramlines is a metropolitan event, we strongly recommend using the brilliant public transport system. Please see the below advice on how to get to the event using public transport.
For those outside the city, Sheffield is easily accessible from across the country by train. It has regular trains running around the region and considerably further afield.

Although there will be a black cab pick-up spot operating from the Hillsborough Leisure Centre Car Park, we encourage the use of public transport to reduce the event’s environmental impact, but also to help you get home more quickly as there could be congestion on the surrounding roads. The Taxi pick-up area will be sign-posted from the main site.
