Tramlines 2023

Recommended Posts

I hope they have chucked down a few more wagon loads of wood chip and straw overnight because the mud was pretty bad. The ramp down to T'Other stage is shocking and I would guess inaccessible for many. Same goes for the toilets area by the Leadmill stage.

 

There is nowhere to sit when it rains because even in the tents the grass is soaking wet.

£7 a pint (£6.75 actually).

Most of the beer seems to be Brewdog - which I've been avoiding since reports about that company.

£9 fish finger sandwich (OK it's not £10 yet but nearly).

Loads of rubbish bands.

Everyone videoing the rubbish bands.

Pyrotechnics (flares) in the tents - no-one does anything.

Ashcroft whining about Covid regulations.

Even more rubbish bands.

 

I'd tolerate all of that nonsense if the lineup was any good but it's got worse over the years.

 

That's it for me.

I suppose lots of you 'old hippies' will be visiting your doctor with 'trench foot' on Monday morning after wading through the Hillsborough park quagmire?¬† ¬†Seems like an overly-expensive washout to me.¬†¬†ūüôĄ

People don't care about all that.... especially the British

 

Just as long as there is beer and music they'll have a great time

 

You go get your Coco, watch The Ruth Rendell Mysteries on TV and have an early night 

 

You probably have an exciting day walking of around a garden centre tomorrow

Do wonder what arrangement they have in regards to "putting right" the park afterwards, it would have ended up the same no matter what park it was held in this weekend tbh. 

Wouldn't be surprised to see a Tweet saying today has been cancelled. No rain now but 48 hours worth surely has taken a toll.

It would have been better to hold it in the car park at Meadowhall

no the only perfect place ,due to site is the s6 park so says most ,but if it was big enough that area i agree meadowhall with the great tram and motorway links is a good idea,the big water park is there this year ,but that could be a winner if big enough,better than ruining our parks in sheffield.

A fantastic event in Sheffield and all people do is biitch and moan

 

It's why investors prefer to go elsewhere where it's less hassle

 

No wonder Sheffield is getting left behind by other cities when it's residents have such a bad attitude

How many other big music festivals in the UK are held on concrete? Genuine question. 

 

No matter what park this was held in this weekend it was always going to end up a quagmire.

Hmmm... :huh:


Following complaints from local residents, I've heard that SCC are now looking into the possibility of extending their maintenance contract with Amey to see if they can't tarmac over the whole park.

 

This would also solve the parking problems on match days.

 

Your thoughts? :hihi:

I doubt many people drive to a music festival. They wouldn't be able to have a drink for a start. I don't think that public parks should be closed off for private events, so I do agree that Hillsborough Park is the wrong place for it. The field next to Crystal Peaks tram stop would be a good location off the top of my head. If Glastonbury can get permission from the farmers, I don't see why Tramlines can't.

I was very much inclined to agree with you Amber Leaf but then I checked the 2021 census for Glastonbury (1 of the 4 of you could have done this but hey ho) & the population is 8297

 

I think the given attendance was 250,000 - that's an awful lot of people walking from nearby villages potentially so I'm going to be quite blunt, if I may be so bold, & say you don't know what you're talking about despite your business diploma & voluntary work
