Tramlines + Bloom.fm Join Forces
Tramlines, Sheffield’s award winning inner-city festival, has partnered with ground-breaking music app Bloom.fm to launch the official streaming radio for the festival.
Bloom.fm’s Tramlines radio will help festivals-goers make the most of their weekend by previewing hundreds of artists on the Tramlines 2013 festival bill, including Lianne La Havas, 2.54, Dog Is Dead, Dutch Uncles and many more.
Festival director Sarah Nulty said: “We’re delighted to offer Tramlines radio through the Bloom.fm app. It’s a great way to discover music from the acts on our line-up before, during and after the festival. Bloom.fm is a young and innovative UK company that shares our passion for great music.

Tramlines attracts over 150,000 people over the three day festival, turning Sheffield into one massive festival site, creating the feel and atmosphere that rivals any green field festival site. It covers all music genres from indie, electronica and blues to world music, folk and everything in between.
Over 60 of Sheffield’s music venues and performance spaces will be pulling out the stops staging hundreds of artists across the city. Devonshire Green’s Main Stage and the new ¬and ¬improved Stage 2 will be home to some of the most exciting artists around.
There’ll be an expanded dance music programme, a Street Theatre area, and the welcome return of the Folk Forest, the Peace Gardens’ World Stage, the Buskers Bus, the Weston Park party and the Blues and Ale Trail.
Wrist bands are needed for the main stages and music venues you would usually pay to enter (Leadmill, Harley, DQ, Plug, O2 and so on) The wristband will also get you priority entry into free venues operating in the city centre.
