The Fringe at Tramlines returns to Sheffield and once again, Devonshire Green will host The Fringe Stage- a FREE family-friendly area, with loads of live music on Saturday 22 & Sunday 23 July.
Supported by Sheffield BID and Sheffield City Council, prepare for a weekend filled with music and entertainment as the city centre becomes a vibrant hub of celebration.
Specially curated by local promoter Papa Al, The Fringe Stage will present a rich tapestry of musical genres set to reflect Sheffield's diverse cultural landscape.
Saturday headliners Jungle Lion are an energetic ska ensemble featuring 10 talented musicians with a long history of performances during the Tramlines weekend. They'll be joined on Saturday by reggae, funk, soul, ska and more from supporting acts, Solar Love Society and The Free Radicals.
Speed for Lovers will perform their live electronic music inspired by Sheffield’s vibrant club scene, while gifted reggae performer, Ripton Lindsey and soul/Motown band, Soul Battalion will also perform along with Romano Jilo (Roma dancers) and Blue Street Brass.
A huge hit on the festival circuit with support from by Norman Cook, Chris Arnold's Beatles Dub Club will also feature on Saturday, remixing Beatles classics. Completing the Saturday line-up are Los Vastardos, a new mystery band from Alex del Mango and the Shine Performance Choir with Sista Soul, a vibrant and funky choir including gospel soloists.
Sunday at Devonshire Green is headlined by the magnificent Sheffield Beatles Project, a super group of local musicians playing music from The Beatles. Also performing are Highway Child (soul, funk and blues), Shanghai Treason (folk-tinged punk rock), Tracks Presents (a big group of young performers from Sheffield Music School) and Rogue Siesta with their funky reggae grooves.
The lively outdoor main stage at Devonshire Green also complements a whole range of FREE events taking place in venues, bars, pubs, and clubs, across the city centre and beyond, creating a festival vibe in the city that extends beyond the main Tramlines event at Hillsborough Park.
