Tramlines festival director Sarah Nulty made this comment on making the first announcement: “The 2014 lineup was one of our best ever so we knew we’d set the bar high for this year, and we think we’ve done it again with the legendary likes of Buzzcocks and Sugarhill Gang. We pride ourselves on being a ‘discovery’’ festival where people can seek out established talent alongside breaking talent and are excited to share more big and brand-new names for the festival.

Tramlines festival tickets are on sale now, priced at £30 plus a £3 booking fee.
