Charming, funny and at the top of her game, Lady Leshurr brings her unmissable, high-energy live show toSunday’s Main Stage for what promises to be a highlight of 2017’s festival. With her Queen’s Speech series currently at fifty million views on YouTube and counting, the rap talent has sold out shows from New York to Brixton, and attracted the attention of international hip-hop heavyweights like Timbaland, Erykah Badu, and Busta Rhymes.
Meanwhile, dancehall duo The Heatwave are well known for filling dancefloors across the globe. Their appearance in Tramlines’ brand-new Into The Trees area at the Ponderosa Park main stage site on Saturday is sure to help get the party atmosphere in full swing. Local DJ talent from genre-hopping disco obsessive Leroy, hip-hop promoters Thirsty Ear and the crew behind Sheffield’s bass music radio station UK Mondo all join the Into The Trees lineup, with The Heatwave and the already announced Don Letts and The Reflex.
More emerging talent comes from the new PRS Momentum tent, which will take pride of place alongside the newly-reinstated stage in Devonshire Green. Rapper Ms Banks and The Big Moon side-project Our Girl join the bill, which already features hotly-tipped emerging artists like Bossy Love, Flamingods, Mista Silva andJerry Williams. Local talent is well represented on the new stage too, with Sheffield’s jazz-inspired surf-pop band Katie Pham & The Moonbathers also new to the bill.
