IT’S a highlight of the year in the area’s music calendar - the Tramlines festival.

The three-day festival - which organisers stressed will never be cancelled due to bad weather - promises bands from the South Yorkshire appearing alongside acts from Brighton, Nottingham and Cardiff.

The New Music Stage is one of four outdoor stages which will be erected in Sheffield city centre as part of the festivities.

The line-up includes signed trio Matador, Esben and the Witch, Alarm Bells and Dog is Dead.

Kate Hewett, head booker at Tramlines, said: “Tramlines has always put a lot of emphasis on showcasing the best breaking talent. With the New Music Stage, we have the opportunity to introduce festival-goers to some slightly more left-field acts and hopefully help people discover their new favourite band.

Tramlines takes place in 70 venues across Sheffield from July 20 to July 22. The free event’s headliners include homegrown heroes Reverend and the Makers, Ms Dynamite and We Are Scientists.

WHERE: Various, Sheffield
