The Tramlines Festival is an annual music festival held in Sheffield. The festival has in the past been free to attend but main area access is now with paid for wristbands (most fringe venues including dozens of bars, pubs and clubs remain free of charge).

The line-up consists of national and local artists. The festival is curated and organised by a panel comprising local venue owners, promoters and volunteers.

The name of the festival is inspired by the city's tram network. Tramlines held its first festival in 2009, which attracted 35,000 fans and was seen as a huge success, and 2010's event doubled that figure. Tramlines 2011 took place between Friday 22 and Sunday 24 July.

The success of Tramlines Festival 2011 led to the event winning 'Best Metropolitan Festival' at the UK Festival Awards.

The festival takes place at over 70 venues and 4 main stages in the city centre, including The Leadmill, Crystal, The Viper Rooms, O2 Academy Sheffield, Barkers Pool, The University of Sheffield, The Harley, The Bowery, the Peace Gardens and the main stage on Devonshire Green with a capacity of 8,000.

This year, the main headlining acts were Katy B, Public Enemy, The Cribs and Annie Mac. As with last year, there is also a fee but it has increased to £12 per day. Early bird tickets were available in advance at £15 for all three days.
