Catfish And The Bottlemen



Currently rising high following the release of their second album The Ride, Catfish And The Bottlemen have blown away their audiences at Glastonbury and while headlining Truck Festival. The Welsh boys began the year winning the Brit Award for British Breakthrough Act and are on track to become a world phenomenon.


They look set to stun when they take to the Main Stage at 19:45 on Sunday 24th of July.





Known for her sassy soul, Kelis has continually produced sure-fire hits since the release of her Gold certified 1999 debut album Kaleidoscope and sold over 1.5 million records worldwide. Her amazing back catalogue includes the tracks Lil Star, Trick Me, I Hate You So Much Right Now and, of course, Milkshake.


The R&B legend will be owning the Main Stage from 20:45 on Saturday 23rd of July.


Kate Jackson And The Wrong Moves



Local lass Kate Jackson began work with her new band The Wrong Moves following the end of her essential indie band The Long Blondes. Jackson’s knack for writing intelligent pop songs with terrifically catchy hooks has only improved making this Tramline’s set absolutely unmissable.


See the Sheffield starlet strut her stuff in O2 Academy at 17:15 on Saturday 23rd of July.


Jurassic 5



Old school hip hop heroes Jurassic 5 absolutely know how to bring the party. Their jazz-infused breaks and laid back MC style perfectly suit a hot summer’s day making them absolutely essential viewing for any serious festival goer.


Check out their outstanding lyrical skill and amazing beats at 17:00 on the Main Stage at 19:45 on Sunday 24th of July.




Spanish garage rock band Hinds are a perfect addition to the Tramlines line-up. Their lo-fi rock and roll has charmed critics and earned them a loyal following the world over. Their debut album Leave Me Alone was released at the outset of the year and is becoming somewhat of a cult record.


The enigmatic band will be gracing the Main Stage at 16:00 on Sunday 24th of July.


Other amazing acts include The Dandy Warhols, Big Narstie, Young Fathers, Cowtown and Holy Esque.
