Just because I was
kicked out left Sheffield, doesn’t mean we won’t do a preview for ya. We know it’s a very busy weekend, this whole Tramlines thing, so we’ve done a lil’ list of bands we really suggest you check.
Like last year, we’ve compiled a nifty PDF file you can print with our recommendations. Print it double sided, fold it and Bob’s your uncle No, really, we did the DNA test – don’t you believe our DNA testing methods? Philistine!
Can’t be arsed to move around and want to stay #safe in one location? We got your back with these suggestions for full days*:

Other stuff to do:
-Get on The Busker Bus. Always a good time and it’s free transportation, dammit. Be on the lookout for The Clench, See Emily Play and Stuart Faulkner.
-Going to see a smokin’ hot act like Maybeshewill, Esben & The Witch or Post War Glamour Girls? Be there early!
–Sheffield Cathedral is a gorgeous place and if you can make some time to see bands there, we absolutely recommend it.
-Don’t know a band? Take a chance, take a chance, take a chance on theeeem.
-Enjoy yourself. And beware of the Piano Playing Nun. You’ll see it.
