The Cribs, Deap Vally and Katy B are among the first wave of artists to be announced for Sheffield's Tramlines Festival.

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.

Katy B will headline on the Friday night at Devonshire Green, playing tracks from her forthcoming new album 'Little Red'. Also set to appear on the first night of the bash is Toddla T, and The Wedding Present.

Deap Vally will play on Saturday (July 26) along with Gold Panda and LA alternative hip-hop artist The Gaslamp Killer. The Cribs will headline the Main Stage on Sunday (July 27), playing material from their forthcoming two albums this year.

Other artists announced today (February 3) include Benji B, Blessa, Jonwayne, Lewis Watson Leon Vynehall, Moxie and Shy Nature.

Sarah Nulty, Festival Director at Tramlines said: "We're really excited about the line-up so far and I think fans will see just how committed we are to compiling a diverse music programme that appeals to music fans across the board. Unlike previous years, the Tramlines team is now responsible for programing lineups across all main venues, so you’re going to see even more of our music tastes in the hundreds of acts yet to be announced!"

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).

A host of other acts, including the Saturday night Main Stage headliner, will be announced over the coming weeks. For more information visit the Tramlines website.
