Day Two of Tramlines brought clearer skies and even bigger crowds. It was nice to see more families enjoying the festival which gave Tramlines a sense of community.
Miles Kane kicked off the day for Forge Press at 4.30pm where he rocked the Main Stage with ‘Don’t Forget Who You Are’ and an interesting cover of Donna Summer’s ‘Hot Stuff.’
Sheffield’s own Reverend and the Makers brought head-banging, indie-rock lovers together to perform their classic song ‘Heavyweight Champion of the World’ which made the crowd go wild.
Skinny Living captivated the audience at the Library Stage with their soulful vocals. We caught up with guitarist Danny Hepworth backstage who said he loves how local Tramlines Festival is and that it really brings out his Yorkshire Accent. He described Tramlines as “like Leeds Fest but on a smaller scale.”
Jaws gave an amazing set at the Leadmill Stage with tracks from their latest album The Ceiling. You could feel their passion for performing as the audience sang along to ‘Stay in’ and ‘Fruit’. Personally, I had never really listened to Jaws before Tramlines, but after seeing them live, they’re definitely going to be added to my playlist!
The Japanese House ended the night for the Library Stage with a relaxing atmosphere created by their soft vocals and synths. You can read our interview with lead singer Amber Bain before Tramlines, here: http://forgetoday.com/2019/07/21/interview-the-japanese-house/
The Courteeners were a perfect end to the night. Frontman Liam Fray announced that they have finished recording their new album and gave us an insight to one of the slower album tracks ‘Hanging Off Your Cloud’. Liam concluded night two by thanking Sheffield for their support and mentioning how the Leadmill has always been good to them before the crowd went wild for an encore of ‘Not Nineteen Forever’ and ‘What Took You So Long?’
