Jurassic 5, Kelis, Mystery Jets, Gaz Coombes added to lineup
We're thrilled to announce that Jurassic 5, Kelis, Mystery Jets, Gaz Coombes, My Nu Leng, Novelist, Floorplan, Skream, Paleman, Leon Vynehall and Scuba are amongst the latest announcements for this year's festival.
Alternative hip-hop legends Jurassic 5 will continue to add to the growing list of hip-hop heroes to play Tramlines, joining alumni like Public Enemy, Sugarhill Gang, De La Soul, Mobb Deep and more. The ground-breaking and critically-acclaimed group helped to shape the sound of hip-hop in the 90s, with their influence continuing to be heard today.
Meanwhile, US pop icon Kelis will perform hits from her 15-year career and astounding, six-album back catalogue. A hugely talented and influential artist, fans will be able to enjoy Kelis' closing set on Tramlines' outdoor Main Stage on Saturday 23 July.
Elsewhere, festival favourites Mystery Jets and former Supergrass frontman Gaz Coombes both add a further injection of guitar-based goodness to the bill.
The latest announcement also sees a huge injection of electronic and bass music talent. One of the hottest names in electronic music, Bristol-based Black Butter duo My Nu Leng will appear, showcasing their inventive, dark and atmospheric take on garage. Elsewhere, much-hyped grime artist Novelist, grime legend P Money, dubstep-guru-turned-techno-master Skream, the stylish house grooves of Leon Vynehall, jazz drummer Paleman, Scuba, Boddika, Zed Bias, Tom Trago and Sheffield duo Sticky Blood all join the bill, alongside Detroit techno legend Robert Hood, under his ground-breaking Floorplan alias.
As always, Tramlines provides an impressive platform for emerging talent, with further additions to the lineup including Belfast duo exmagician (formerly Cashier #9); BBC 6 Music sweetheart Laura J Martin; the genre-spanning electronica of Miles from Kinshasa; the downtempo groove of Roseau; rising MC Coco; the dreamy melodies of Portland duo Pure Bathing Culture; sophisticated alt-pop duo Ardyn and anthemic indie-rock from Sundara Karma.
