Tramlines has today confirmed that Kelham Island food hall Cutlery Works will be providing a brand new street food area at this year’s festival in Hillsborough Park.
We’re told to expect ‘a dedicated area with communal seating and chilled atmosphere, alongside an exciting array of street food vendors from the local area for meat-eaters, veggies and vegans alike.’
Vendors will include Shed, Froconut and Gravy Train from Cutlery Works, along with Pieminister, Get Wurst, The Meatless Farm and Proove pizza, with more to be announced in the coming weeks, making it the biggest festival-wide food offering to date.
Following on from last year’s successful move to Hillsborough Park, the festival organisers hope for an even bigger party this year, with a capacity of 30,000, a site spanning four stages of music, a soon-to-be-announced comedy line up, and an improved family friendly area.
The Courteeners, Two Door Cinema Club and Chic featuring Nile Rodgers will headline this year’s festival, joined by a number of other top acts including Rag’n’bone Man, Doves, Manic Street Preachers, Miles Kane, Circa Waves and Reverend And The Makers.
Tramlines Operations Director Timm Cleabsy said: “Following on from the amazing party that was our tenth birthday, we’ve been working hard to make the festival even better and to find artists that we’re excited about.
“I think we have some great artists this year that span generations. Courteeners, Chic, Rag’n’Bone Man, The Manics, Miles Kane are all on my list to catch over the weekend and there are more to come too, including, as usual, some great Sheffield Favourites and new talent. I can’t wait for July, it’s going to be awesome and I hope everyone will join us for Sheffield’s Biggest Party.”
Tickets have been selling quickly since their release after last year’s festival, and are now available at Tier 5 prices of £75.50 plus booking fee from the Tramlines website.
