Tramlines to go ahead as Government ‘Pilot’ Festival
We start our News Report again with the subject of our beloved summer music festivals. Sadly this week has seen more events fall foul of the Governments refusal to properly support the sector.
One festival that has been lucky enough to receive ‘pilot’ status is Sheffield’s Tramlines Festival. That guarantees that the event will go ahead as planned at the end of this month. Festival fans are out of luck though as the event is already sold out!
Organisers have however confirmed the line-up that ticket holders will get to witness. Highlights on the bill include headliners The Streets, Royal Blood and Richard Ashcroft.
They are joined by The Kooks, Circa Waves, The Pigeon Detectives, Lauran Hibberd, Lottery Winners, The Fratellis, Jake Bugg, The Snuts, The Hara, Vistas, Chubby And The Gang and many more.
