Tramlines 2015 – super-earlybird tickets onsale

After a massive 2014 and our best festival yet, all of us here at Tramlines Towers are very happy to be able to tell you that we’ve now set the dates for Tramlines 2015.

Next year’s festival will be taking place from Friday 24th – Sunday 26th July.

As ever, the seventh (!) Tramlines will be a homage to our beloved Sheffield, taking place in the City Centre across our outdoor Main Stage and 15 of the city’s finest venues and performance spaces. We’re already hard at work on the lineup, and can’t wait to share the latest developments with you.

Trust us when we say that 2015 is going to be bigger than ever.

In the meantime, though, now is your chance to get yourself fully paid up for Tramlines 2015.

We have put a very limited number of super-earlybird weekend tickets up for sale at just £20. That’s even less than the price of a 2014 weekend tickets.

Tickets are available online now through Gigantic. Just follow this link to get yourself paid up.

Meanwhile, Sheffielders can beat the booking fee by buying in person from The Harley box office.

If you need a little reminder on why coming to party with us is set to an essential part of your summer 2015, take a peek at this year’s highlights below:

Last year’s earlybird tickets sold out in a frankly ridiculous three days, so be quick to make sure you don’t miss out.

Racing Glaciers at The Harley, 21.11.14

 photo Logo_zps70c4809e.jpg

For the fifth show in the Mapped Out series, Macclesfield five-piece Racing Glaciers will join us at The Harley on 21st November. Trading in an expansive, stadium-sized indie-pop, the band have just completed a packed summer of festivals playing to an ever-growing fanbase.

The Mapped Out tour series, meanwhile, gives a national platform to breaking artists, with each headliner playing an eight-date tour across the UK with support from local bands and artists. Having previously worked with engineer Barny Barnicott (Peace, Arctic Monkeys), the band decided it was time to bring in an external producer for their third EP Don’t Wait For Me, produced by Jolyon Thomas (Daughter, Sigur Ros, M83).

2014 has been a life-changing summer for the band. They have played on festival stages across the country, played a packed out support slot at Shepherd’s Bush Empire to thousands of screaming new fans & honed their live sound to a point where they are ready to tour Europe this Autumn.

OFF! at Leadmill, Sheffield, 4th October

We’re very happy to announce that next month’s show with punk supergroup OFF! has moved to Leadmill. It’ll mark our first show at the venue after six years of working together, and we’re excited to be able to make it such a good one.

Made up of members of some of the most influential bands in punk and hardcore, OFF!’s collective resumé is absolutely staggering:

Keith Morris (Black Flag, Circle Jerks)
Dimitri Coates (Burning Brides,
Mario Rubalcaba (Rocket From the Crypt, Hot Snakes, Battalion of Saints)
Steven McDonald (Redd Kross)

Over the past four years, OFF! have proven to be more than just a band. They also raise a series of challenging questions. After four decades of heavy use, does punk rock still have any life left in it? Do Keith Morris and his gang of grown-ass punk heroes still have the goods?

They’ve answered their own questions with a resounding yes through a packed itinerary of shows and a handful of recordings that are among the rawest musical experiences of the new decade. Combining reckless improvisational energy with the combined skills of four deadly sharp musicians, OFF! have dug down through a decades’ worth of accumulated stylistic garbage, and rediscovered the stripped down core of noise, speed, and rock & roll that punk seemed to have lost forever.

They are currently touring their third full-length album Wasted Years.

Searingly loud, frantically paced, and best taken in a single 23-minute dose, Wasted Years is a sonic cinder block, a clenched fist raised in the face of rock & roll refinement. If you had any questions about the state of punk in 2014, this is your answer.

The band will be supported by NYC punks Cerebral Ballzy.
