After a resounding success last year, the Buskers’ Bus is back. As with all things Tramlines, this year the Buskers’ Bus is bigger and better.

Two double-decker buses will take revellers around the festival, stopping at key venue destinations, all of course, for free.

Lee Mullin, Buskers’ Bus Manager said:

“Last year the Bromheads curated Buskers’ Bus was the highlight of many people’s weekend, travelling round the city whilst being entertained by Sheffield’s biggest artists. The Buskers’ Bus connects the peripheral venues with the city centre, making sure festival goers can take in the whole Tramlines site. This year we’ve pulled out all the stops. Two double deckers, national artists as well as home grown talent, secret sets, sing-alongs and much, much more.”

‘The Milestone Blues and Ale Bus’ starts at the Devonshire Cat on Wellington Street en route to Kelham Island. The route will feature bands like Pete David and the Payroll Union, Low Duo and Risky Heroes.

The ‘Steelworks-VOICE’ Buskers’ Bus’ will cover Broomhill, Hunters Bar and the Train Station and includes Elephant Keys, Mothers Ruin, and Skint & Demoralised.

Both buses run a 20-minute circuit starting at the Devonshire Cat 11am-10pm Saturday and Sunday. The routes have been sponsored by The Milestone, Steelworks and VOICE.

As with last year, there will be plenty of surprise guests and treats, with David Bowie and Beatles sing-along buses and big headline bands yet to be announced.

Last year, bus passengers were treated to surprise performances from the likes of Dinosaur Pile-Up and The Everley Pregnant Brothers. This year The Chapman Family and others have already confirmed that they will perform on the Buskers’ Bus at some point over the weekend. Revellers will have to hope they are on the right service to catch their intimate performances in what will be a once in a lifetime experience.
