Tramlines Festival Line Up for 2022 Announced
Headlining are Sam Fender (Friday), Kasabian (Saturday), and Madness (Sunday). Plus many more acts are unveiled including The Wombats, The Vaccines, James, and Declan McKenna. Alongside them are Sigrid, Becky Hill, Reverend and The Makers, and more.
Over five stages of music, art, performance, a soon to be announced comedy lineup, family friendly area and a genre-spanning lineup of the internationally acclaimed to grass roots talent, 2022 will mark the 13th edition of Sheffield’s Biggest Party.
Tramlines 2022 takes place following an exceptional event in 2021 where the festival took place as part of the Government’s Event Research Programme. It was the largest festival in Western Europe to go ahead since lockdown restrictions were eased. And it marked a national celebration of the return to live music.
Timm Cleasby, Tramlines Operations Director said, “After the amazing spirit that everyone brought to Tramlines 2021 and how the team delivered an amazing festival in challenging times, we’re all back working hard to make 2022 better than ever. I honestly can’t wait to be back in the park and having a blast with Sheffield again.
“There are so many great bands on the 2022 lineup. Those I’m really looking forward to catching are Sigrid, Kasabian, The Coral, Orla Gartland and James, and there’s some great Sheffield artists that I’ve been looking forward to seeing for a while too, the amazing Self Esteem, the return of Little Man Tate and our friends, Reverend and The Makers to name a few. Then to finish off the party, Madness will be sending everyone dancing back to their house… Tramlines 2022 is gonna go off.”
Headlining ‘Sarah Nulty’s Main Stage’ on Friday night is Sam Fender with two Number 1 albums now under his belt. The newly formed but better than ever Kasabian take the lead on Saturday night. And Madness finally get to deliver a long-awaited set following the postponement of Tramlines in 2020.
Ever with its finger on the pulse of breaking talent, the Tramlines 2022 lineup shines a light on some of the most exciting new acts around. These include the gritty indie-folk artist Orla Gartland who dropped her debut album ‘Women on the Internet’ this August; the melodic, indie-pop rising star Pixey who has just released her second EP on the influential Chess Club label; the guardian tipped ‘one to watch’ outfit Coach Party; and guitarist-singer Sam Ryder who shot to fame with his cover versions during the pandemic resulting in TikTok crowning his the most popular UK artist account of 2020.
A Tramlines lineup wouldn’t be complete without a solid injection of Sheffield’s finest. For 2022, crowds can expect homegrown sets from Jon McClure’s Reverend and The Makers; Self Esteem (aka Rebecca Taylor formerly of Slow Club); Little Man Tate in their highly anticipated return since their farewell in 2009; and arguably one of most attended performances of the entire Tramlines weekend, The Everly Pregnant Brothers who’ll bring the power house of parody, charm and sing-a-long vibes.
This is just the first wave of talent set to perform at Tramlines 2022. Festival-goers should keep an eye out for further lineup announcements. They will include comedy and cabaret, family fun, and fabulous food and drink offerings.
