The festival director of Tramlines has died at the age of 36.

Sarah Nulty came to the city in 1999 and has died after a short illness.

She had been involved with the festival since its launch in 2009, and had been director of the Sheffield festival since 2013.

A statement from Tramlines said: “Sarah dedicated her whole working career to the Sheffield music industry. After nearly two-decades, this work has led to massive benefits for the city and she has been the driving force of Tramlines for many years.

“Her tenacity, vision and unbreakable work ethic are the reasons that the festival can celebrate its tenth anniversary.

“Sarah turned her hand to every aspect of the running the event over the years, she was the life and soul of Tramlines and no job was too small, but no responsibility too great.

“We would like to celebrate Sarah’s huge talent and the profound impact that she has had on the lives of so many people over the years.”

Some, including Reverend & The Makers, made tributes to Sarah on Twitter.

A campaign to #BeMoreLikeNulty has been launched on Twitter.
