Public Enemy to play Tramlines Festival 2014
The hip-hop group join The Cribs and Katy B on the bill for the Sheffield event
The hip-hop group will headline the Saturday night of the Sheffield festival on July 26. They join previously announced acts The Cribs, Katy B, Annie Mac, Toddla T Sound, Deap Vally, The Gaslamp Killer, Bo Ningen, Gold Panda, The Wedding Present, Levon Vincent, Lewis Watson, Benji B, Menace Beach, Catfish And The Bottlemen, Jonwayne, Leon Vynehall, Eliphino, Shy Nature, De Sluwe Vos and Moko.
Other artists announced for Tramlines 2014 today include Maurice Fulton, Luke Solomon, Sky Larkin, The Heatwave, Prince Fatty ft Horseman, Cholobian, Battle Lines, and Best Friends.
Now in its sixth year, the event will take place at over 50 venues in the city between July 25-27 including the O2 Academy, The Night Kitchen, Gothic Cathedral, Fez Club, Fusion and Foundry, The Harley, Hope Works, Millennium Galleries, Queens Social Club and Yellow Arch Studios.
Last year marked the first time that organisers charged for entry, with the introduction of a one-off fee of £6 per day. Tramlines has been a free festival since 2009 but organisers said funding cuts forced the organisers to ask punters to contribute. Ticket prices this year start at £12 for day tickets or £28 for weekend tickets (plus booking fees).
