Funk legend announced as Tramlines headliner

SEVENTIES funk icon George Clinton has been announced as the final headliner for this year's Tramlines festival.

US superstar George will bring his Parliament Funkadelic Mothership to the Tramlines Main Stage on Saturday for an unforgettable stage show featuring more than 20 musicians. 

Also added to the bill are The Enemy, Jane Weaver, Shining, Basement, Cowtown, Toucans, Little Comets, Moon Duo, Teleman, Holy Esque, and Beaty Heart. 

The artists join the already announced Dizzee Rascal, Jurassic 5, Kelis, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Mystery Jets, Gaz Coombes, Dawn Penn, Field Music, Young Fathers and many more for the festival’s eighth instalment. 

Indie trio The Enemy will headline the Leadmill on the Friday in what will be one of their very last shows, following a recent announcement that the band will split after their autumn tour. 

Expect a farewell set punctuated with hit singles that have sold more than one million copies around the world.

The experimental, psychedelic alt-rocker, Jane Weaver, brings her 20-year strong catalogue to the Tramlines Folk Forest in Endcliffe Park. 

Joining her are much-feted leftfield indie-pop outfit Teleman, performing tracks from their brand new album, Brilliant Saintly.

Ipswich five-piece Basement are back after a short hiatus to headline the City Hall’s majestic Grand Ballroom venue, having also just released a new album, Promise Everything.

City Hall’s experimental rock line-up will also feature the debut appearance of Norwegian alt-rock group Shining, among others.

Crossing the Atlantic to play at Tramlines in the ethereal setting of the Sheffield Cathedral is US pysch outfit Moon Duo, made up of Sanae Yamada and Ripley Johnson, also of psych heroes Wooden Shjips. 

Tramlines will take place from July 22–24, a full weekend ticket costs £42.
