Sheffield festival Tramlines has confirmed its first names, including Hinds, Dizzee Rascal, and Young Fathers.

The award-winning event (Best Medium-Sized and Best City at the Festival Baby Awards) will also feature sets from C Duncan, Gwenno, Meilyr Jones, Mt. Wolf, Dan Mangan, Field Music, and Little Simz.

Today's wave of acts is completed by All We Are, Dawn Penn, Goldie MBE, Toddla T, FYI Chris, LEVELZ, Trash, Norman Jay MBE, Mumdance B2B Pinch, Paranoid London (live), Randall, Marquis Hawkes, Rukhsana Merrise, Denis Sulta, Amy Becker, and Matrixxman.

Festival Director Sarah Nulty says of the first line up announcement:

“We are really excited to return with Tramlines, for what is now our eighth year. Having Dizzee to headline the Main Stage on Friday will be an incredible way to start the weekend. We listened to feedback from last year and realised people needed more choice when it came to buying tickets to help them catch their favourite acts. So far, the new options have been well received, and early-bird tickets have already sold out. We’ve got some great headliners yet to announce plus a great mix of international and local talent still to come and we’re all looking forward to sharing what is set to be our biggest year yet.

Tramlines 2016 takes place 22-24 July across multiple venues and stages in Sheffield's city centre.

Tickets are on sale now - 2016 sees the introduction of Day and Night tickets.
