This weekend thousands of people migrated to Sheffield’s buzzing city center for the annual inner city music festival which hosts artists, music and food. Debuting in 2009, Tramlines has attracted people from across the country desperate to see talent from alternative, indie, pop and world music to local as well as those globally known perform across 18 venues.

This year with the success of the urban UK music scene becoming much more mainstream, Tramlines was jam-packed with Grime, Tech, D&B artists and DJ’s throughout the day and night and I think it’s safe to say there was definitely a Grime Take over across Sheffield.
