These huge Manchester bands are playing the same festival next week


Music is everything to us in Manchester, and we couldn’t be more excited about the fact that a number of iconic Manc bands are set to play the same festival next weekend.

Sheffield festival Tramlines is almost upon us, describing itself as “Sheffield’s biggest ever party", it boasts an impressive line up that 30,000 people will be hitting the fields to see.

And get this... It's full of Manchester talent.


Fresh from their Heaton Park homecoming gig which saw them perform in front of 50,000 adoring fans, Middleton band Courteeners will take to the main stage on Saturday.

Happy Mondays, another quintessentially Manc band, will also be making noise at Tramlines on Sunday.

Smiths legend Johnny Marr will even be bringing his jangly guitars to the main stage on Saturday before Courteeners, a man worshipped for his style and musicianship.


Peter Hook & The Light, Miles Kane, Reverend and The Makers, Lewis Capaldi and Circa Waves will also make appearances.

As well as music, there will be comedy, a pop-up cinema, an expanded family area and a food and drink line-up that will make either the most avid Instagram foodie blush.


Tramlines is held in Hillsborough Park over the weekend of the 19th to the 21st of July, with a mega line-up of more than 70 artists spanning four stages.

Formerly a multi-venue, inner-city festival, Tramlines evolved in 2018 and took place across a single, greenfield site.

The 11th edition of the festival is already shaping up to be unreal.


Tickets are running low, so you’ll need to be really quick. You can find more info on the Tramlines website.

With so much talent, and especially so much Manc talent, you'd be a fool to miss this one!
