Tramlines Festival returned to Sheffield for an eighth year with it’s biggest line-up ever, featuring the likes of Catfish and The Bottlemen, Dizzee Rascal, The Dandy Warhols, Public Service Broadcasting and DJ Steve Davis among the hundreds of artists performing over the three-day event between 22nd and 24th July.
Attending for a third year, and for the first time ever with a press entry, I watched a total of 17 acts perform during the event across multiple locations – from the Ponderosa’s main stage to O2 Academy, and even the much smaller fringe venues that make the occasion so unique.
Two and a half years after bidding farewell to the UK, Bowling For Soup were back in Sheffield for another round! With hits including ‘Emily’, ‘1985’, ‘High School Never Ends’ and ‘Girl All The Bad Guys Want’ mixed with non-stop joking around, the band performed an incredibly memorable performance than the Steel City crowd won’t be forgetting any time soon!
I sat down with bassist Erik Chandler before the band headlined the O2 Academy to find out why they decided to come back and more about this hugely popular band.
The penultimate night of the UK Foo Fighters‘ ‘Sonic Motorways’ tour took place at Sheffield’s O2 Academy on Friday 12th December 2014. The number one tribute band to Dave Grohl and co. thrilled crowds with tracks from their whole discography, including the newest release ‘Sonic Highways’, from which the tour’s name is cleverly derived.
