Tramlines is one of the UK’s longest running, city-based music festivals and a highlight in Sheffield’s year-round calendar of events and festivals. 

The festival is back once again this year and will take place between Friday 26th and Sunday 28th of July 2024, at Hillsborough Park in Sheffield with headliners Paolo Nutini, Jamie T and Snow Patrol set to bring electrifying sets to the city.

Following the unusually high rainfall during last year’s festival, Tramlines has worked with Sheffield City Council and its approved contractors to carry out all the necessary ground reinstatement works across the park, as well as pathway improvements, all of which has been paid for by Tramlines.  

The Council has also undertaken drainage improvements, co-funded by Tramlines, in areas of the park that suffer from standing rainwater.  

Councillor Richard Williams, Chair of the Charity Trustee Sub-Committee at Sheffield City Council, said:

“Tramlines is a huge part of Sheffield’s events offer, brings enormous benefits to the city and is enjoyed by tens of thousands of music lovers.  

“That being said, Hillsborough Park is incredibly important to the people of Sheffield, which is why we have been working with Tramlines to restore the park to its usual high quality following last year’s event, and to ensure the park is protected as best it can be ahead of the festival this year.

There’s lots of information about the event on the Tramlines website, including a dedicated page for local residents.  Here you can find details on road closures, parking, safety and much more.

Whilst Tramlines in Hillsborough Park is ticketed event, 2024 sees the return of the Fringe at Tramlines. 

Taking place across outdoor spaces, pubs, bars and music venues across the city centre and beyond, expect a whole load of free events to suit all music tastes.

The event will take place alongside the main festival between the 26th and the 28th July 2024.
