The home of lazy posers.
After a massive 2014 and our best festival yet, all of us here at Tramlines Towers are very happy to be able to tell you that we've now set the dates for Tramlines 2015. Next year's festival will be taking place from Friday 24th - Sunday 26th July. As ever, the seventh (!) Tramlines will be a homage to our beloved Sheffield, taking place in the City Centre across our outdoor Main Stage and 15 of the city's finest venues and performance spaces. We're already hard at work on the lineup, and can't wait to share the latest developments with you. Trust us when we say that 2015 is going to be bigger than ever. In the meantime, though, now is your chance to get yourself fully paid up for Tramlines 2015. We have put a very limited number of super-earlybird weekend tickets up for sale at just £20. That's even less than the price of a 2014 weekend tickets. Tickets are available online now through Gigantic. Just follow this link to get yourself paid up. Meanwhile, Sheffielders can beat the booking fee by buying in person from The Harley box office. If you need a little reminder on why coming to party with us is set to an essential part of your summer 2015, take a peek at this year's highlights below: Last year's earlybird tickets sold out in a frankly ridiculous three days, so be quick to make sure you don't miss out.
From this Monday, The Harley will be operating The Twisted Burger Late Night Diner serving burgers til we shut at 4am Sunday to Wednesday. Clubbers don't panic we will be getting to you. As we travelled the festival circuit this Summer, we figured out a way of keeping you in good food through the night. The special Late Night Diner comes in takeaway boxes and is served up with a healthy side of back-to-mine sets from our favourite promoters, free entry and reduced drinks prices for everyone. (Red Stripe three quid). We reckon its about time that Sheffield had a late night restaurant scene - and expect to see a load of our industry mates and hungry regulars coming down to hang out. Join in. The Harley: music with everything since 2003.
Huge congratulations to East India Youth, Jungle, Royal Blood, Nick Mulvey and Anna Calvi, all of whom have earned themselves well-deserved nominations for this year's prestigious Mercury Prize. Radio presenter and all-round champion of new music Steve Lamacq recently described the Mercury Prize shortlist announcement as being like "the music industry having their exam results read out in public". It certainly feels like that at Harley Live this year, where we were really excited to spot five Harley alumni on this year's list. East India Youth, Nick Mulvey and Royal Blood have all played storming shows at our place this year, with East India Youth causing a roadblock for his show and Royal Blood's Harley-filmed 'Little Monster' video having clocked up over 1.5 million views, and counting. Meanwhile, Jungle brought the party care of Semi Detached in late 2013, and Anna Calvi played on for us in spite of a broken hand back in 2011, around the release of her first record. Here's dishing out a big high five to all nominees. We look forward to bringing you loads more of the most exciting new music for the rest of this year and into 2015. Speaking of which, isn't it time you got yourself paid up for The Wytches (6th October) and Allah-Las (2nd October). Both shows look likely to sell out, so don't sleep.
You can catch us at the Drop Dead store this Thursday 14th August for their collaboration with B&B Gallery! The pop-up will showcase a ton of talent, from a plethora of local artists including Kid Acne and our very own Tom J Newell. We'll be hosting a bar, and Twisted Burger Company will be providing a BBQ to keep y'all fed. Hope to see you there!
