Tramlines 2021 took place last summer after the 2020 event was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
In a five-star review of the festival, NME‘s Gary Ryan wrote: “Considering the challenges Tramlines must have faced – including original Sunday night headliner Richard Ashcroft pulling out because he objected to the event being used as part of government research – perhaps the most extraordinary thing is how normal the festival feels.
“As you witness glitter-daubed teenagers having their first rite-of-passage festival moment, the past two years wash away as easily as lines from an Etch-a-Sketch. Something everyone should raise a glass of Château du Skinner to.”
