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 Friday 3 - Staurday 4 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 psychoutfit 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 anddesert-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 upthe 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 PrettyPretty Good taking the reins across two venues with a selection of global sounds, house, funk, disco, techno and more.
