Ezra Furman, Polar Bear, This Is The Kit to perform...
Folk Forest

Tramlines is one of the UK's biggest inner city festivals, a showcase for new music which brings together huge names and complete newcomers.

Returning to Sheffield this summer, organisers have revealed that the event will play host once more to the Folk Forest. Nestled between a river and woodland location in the beautiful Endcliffe Park, it's a uniquely chilled out alternative to the rest of the festival.

Clash is able to reveal the final line up for this year's instalment of the Folk Forest, with Chicago songsmith Ezra Furman, Mercury nominated avant jazz outfit Polar Bear and This Is The Kit all set to perform.

Hidden Orchestra are due to take part, while GoGo Penguin and Diagrams are also on the bill.

Elsewhere, Sheffield four piece The Payroll Union have been added to the bill, with Meadowlark, Scott Matthews and Eastern Seaboard Radio Station completing the new additions.

Festival Director Sarah Nulty said: “After the success of bringing the Cathedral stage into the wristband scheme last year, the Folk Forest stage will also become part of the paid festival. As well as allowing us to ensure that the profile of artists and quality of production can be raised, the move will also support the long-term sustainability of an integral part of Tramlines.”

Tickets are on sale now.

Tramlines runs between July 24th – 26th.
