The Tramlines 2024 line-up is out – here are my ten highlights

Featuring Jamie T, Human League, Maxïmo Park and loads more, I'm already picking the moments to look forward to.


Tramlines in 2023.

The sign of a good festival line-up is that you can picture yourself there.

It might be four degrees and raining outside, but when you look down the list of acts you feel the summer sun on your face. You listen to the songs, get to know the artists and pick moments to look forward to.

And I think there's a lot to look forward to, from big hitter headline performances to artists you may not have heard before.

Here’s what I reckon the ten highlights of Tramlines 2024 will be:

  • Getting covered in lager in the mosh pit for Jamie T’s ‘Sticks ‘n’ Stones’

  • A beautiful sunset as Paolo Nuitini sings ‘Candy’.

  • 40,000 people shouting, “Don’t you want me baby, don’t you want me ohhhh!”

  • Tom Greenan putting a smile on all our faces with non-stop anthems.

  • The cathartic release of Holly Humberstone screaming, “You’re an emotional grim reaper, I feel bad for you!”

  • Everyone getting their Saltburn swagger on for ‘Murder on the Dancefloor’.

  • The Everly Pregnant brother’s classic afternoon slot.

  • The intro to The Charlatans’ ‘The Only One I Know’ echoing across the festival site. Pure Madchester vibes.

  • Soft Play (fka Slaves) bringing the punk.

  • Yard Act telling us about life in Leeds – and how much they love Sheffield.

  • Snow Patrol closing the festival with ‘Chasing Cars’. Hugs all round.

This will be my fourth Tramlines. It's a festival I love. Even in the rain and mud last year, I had a great time. It's a weekend I always look forward to and I think the stellar line-up this year just makes me more excited.

Remaining Tramlines tickets go on pre-sale tomorrow (Thursday 25 January) at 12pm, with the general sale on Friday at 12pm. Weekend tickets are £130 and day tickets are £45 plus booking fees.

See you there?
