Sheffield's Outlines Festival reveals complete 2017 lineup

Weekend tickets for the event are available now for just £20 while stocks last.

Over 40 new artists have been added to the bill for Sheffield's forthcoming Outlines Festival, with iconic punk outfit The Membranes, psych band Flamingods, LA soul singer Kadhja Bonet, rapidly rising punk quintet Shame and alt-pop trio Our Girl among the newly-added acts.

 

The multi-venue metropolitan festival will return to Sheffield City Centre for its second year from 3rd to 4th March with a genre-spanning blend of established artists and up-and-coming acts. The event is programmed and promoted by some of the team behind the city's much-loved Tramlines Festival, and was created with the aim of serving as a little sister to Tramlines during the colder months. After the success of 2016's debut event, the festival's organisers have extended the event, which will now take place across two days.

 

The new names will join a bill of 100 cutting-edge artists which already features Australian psych outfit Jagwar Ma, former Tramlines headliners The Selecter, MOBO winners Lady Leshurr and Nadia Rose and indie band Clean Cut Kid.

 

The region's music scene is also on show, with the newly-added indie band Alvarez Kings and desert-rock outfit These Gangs joining the already announced likes of The Crookes, Slow Club, Blood Sport and The Seamonsters. 

 

 

Meanwhile, fans of electronic music are well catered for, with acclaimed artist Romare heading up the bill at Queens Social Club, and a range of after-parties onsale featuring artists including Admin, Marcel Vogel and Lamont. The after-parties will be hosted by a selection of Sheffield's most well regarded clubnight promoters, with Nice Like Rice, Banana Hill, Souljam and Pretty Pretty Good taking the reins across two venues with a selection of global sounds, house, funk, disco, techno and more.

The multi-venue metropolitan festival will return to Sheffield City Centre for its second year from 3rd to 4th March 2017, showcasing a blend of established artists and up-and-coming acts. The event is programmed and promoted by some of the team behind the city's much-loved Tramlines Festival, and was created with the aim of serving as a little sister to Tramlines during the colder months. After the success of 2016's debut event, the festival's organisers have extended the event, which will now take place across two days.

 

Heading up the bill are Australian psychedelic rock outfit Jagwar Ma, whose newly released second album Every Now & Then has been earning critical acclaim and is already promising to build on the success of hits such as 'Come Save Me' and 'Uncertainty'.

 

Jagwar Ma will share the stage at the iconic venue The Leadmill – now in its 35th year at the forefront of the UK's live music scene – with a host of Sheffield talent. This showcase will be headed up by alt-rock duo Slow Club, whose latest album One Day All Of This Won't Matter Anymore sees the band experiment with an Americana-tinged sound while retaining the rich vocal harmonies of their earlier albums.

Additional Sheffield talent comes from indie-pop quartet The Crookes, who return to the city following an extensive US tour in support of their latest, Fierce Panda-released single 'Roman Candle'.

 

Meanwhile, at the festival's largest venue, Plug, legendary 2-tone pioneers The Selecter return to Sheffield with an arsenal of hits including 'On My Radio' and 'Three Minute Hero'.

 

Fans of electronic music, who last year enjoyed the legendary likes of Roots Manuva on the bill, will also find much to enjoy on the lineup, with emerging grime artist Lady Leshurr just one of the hotly-tipped new acts on the bill.

Those looking to discover new bands and alternative music will be catered for too, with IsletThe OriellesBlood SportLuxury DeathJodie Abacus and Azusena among the first announcements

The Selector

The festival's programmer, Kate Hewett, says:

We've expanded Outlines for its second year to allow us to showcase an even broader range of artists and to give more of a platform to breaking talent from across a range of genres. With the likes of Loyle Carner, Shura and Spring King having featured on 2016's bill, we're confident that there will be some new names to suit all tastes on 2017's lineup.

Whereas in 2016, Outlines took place throughout a single day, 2017's event will be happening across several key venues from 3rd - 4th March. The festival is set to feature a genre-hopping bill of up to 150 artists.

Emerging artists from across the country are also being encouraged to apply to play at the event, with a number of slots still available in all festival venues. Applications are open now via the festival's website at outlinesfestival.com 

Weekend tickets are available now for just £15 while stocks last. Discounted super-earlybird tickets have now sold out.
