Poster design for Tramlines Festival Youth Stage 2011
Tramlines Festival is an annual Music event which takes place in Sheffield, UK every summer.
The name of the festival is inspired by the city’s tram network.
In 2011, around 175,000 music fans attended events across over 70 venues and 4 main stages.
Over 200 live acts performed a variety of genres spanning everything from rock to reggae and featured dance-offs between rival dance troops and a break dance competition.
I was commissioned to design a poster for Tramlines Festival Youth Stage which took part in Sheffield’s Peace Gardens.
The success of Tramlines Festival 2011 led to the event winning ‘Best Metropolitan Festival’ at the UK Festival Awards.
Acts in the main festival included:
Ash, Olly Murs, Pixie Lott, The Futureheads, Heaven 17, Dananananaykroyd, David Rodigan, Dry The River, Michael Prophet, Frankie & The Heartstrings, Los Campesinos!, Rolo Tomassi, Dead Sons, Skint & Demoralised, The Crookes and Sheffield’s own Toddla T.
The festival was sponsored by Nokia and LifeSkills.
