This year the Tramlines event takes place on Friday 21st, Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd July (both Devonshire Green and the Ponderosa stage will operate on Friday night this year).

The main sites will be Ponderosa, Devonshire Green and Peace Gardens with street entertainment on Barker’s Pool. Fargate will have a food stalls and fairground rides. There will also be events in individual bars and clubs but these are run independently of Tramlines and are the responsibility of the individual premises and their licencees.

For Devonshire Green residents affected by excessive noise or other disruption there is a number for a house nuisance line to monitor sound levels and accept complaints for Tramlines festival events. Outdoor music will stop at 22:00hrs if not before

The noise complaint line is 0790 489 6861 and will be in operation whilst the Devonshire Green site is open. SCCRAG suggests that residents in other areas suffering from a noise problem are recommended to report the matter to this number.

The Devonshire Green site is open Friday 5pm-10pm, Saturday 1pm-10pm, Sunday 2pm-9pm

Note: some private events will operate outside the Tramlines official events, but these should still not cause a public noise nuisance.

Devonshire Street will close for all 3 days for queuing.

Division Street will be closed on the Saturday only for safe passage of people as the city centre becomes extremely busy. It will be closed between 3pm and 11pm
