The country was shook by the bombings at The Manchester Arena on May 22nd, prompting a huge ‘One Love Manchester’ event.

£18 million has been raised to help the victims of the Manchester terror attack which caused 23 fatalities during an explosion following an Ariana Grande concert.

The 24-year-old popstar helped to organise the fundraising gig at Emirates Old Trafford on June 4th which featured the likes of Katy Perry, Liam Gallagher, Coldplay and Justin Bieber.

In a statement, Councillor Sue Murphy said: “The city and the world responded with such extreme kindness, generosity and solidarity in the aftermath of the Manchester Arena attack.

“Thanks to this we have raised more than £18 million and we were conscious that we had to get some of swiftly this to those with immediate needs.

“We have therefore given around a third of the total to the bereaved families and £3.5 million to those who were hospitalised after the attack.”

Councillor Murphy revealed that “over half” of the funds raised by the gig have already been allocated, with each family estimated to have received £250,000.

But of how the remaining money will be awarded, Councillor Murphy explained: “This will be a complex and sensitive process as we will need to assess the long-term impacts of the attack.

Tramlines Festival 2017! 70 Acts, 5 Stages, 1 Weekend!

Latest News, UK

Now into its ninth year, the well-established inner-city musical extravaganza that is Tramlines returns with its biggest, boldest and best festival yet. Taking place from Friday 21st July to Sunday 23rd July, Tramlines has a new-look site now taking place across 5 stages with over 70 genre-spanning acts. Without the hassle of camping and the chance of getting knee deep in mud, plus all the benefits of a festival such as grand production, light and sound, Tramlines is one of the best value festivals around at just £45 plus booking fee for a three-day weekend ticket.

This year once again the line-up is an expertly curated eclectic affair featuring everything from grime to indie, hip hop to dub, soul to funk, reggae to rock, r&b and pop. As such, expect to see spectacular sets from The Libertines, All Saints, Kano, Metronomy, Primal Scream, Toots & The Maytals, Akala, Cabbage, Cate Le Bon, Hot 8 Brass Band, Lady Leshurr, Loyle Carner, M.O, The Gospel House Choir, Omar Souleyman, The Coral, The Magic Gang, The Pharcyde, Twin Atlantic, We Are Scientists, The Age of LUNA, The Big Moon, Blaenavon, Bossy Love, Champion, Don Letts, Estrons, Flamingods, The Heatwave, Lucy Spraggan and tons more.

Since its inception in 2009, Tramlines Festival has carved a name for itself as one of the most genre-busting music festivals around. Always dealing in a mix of internationally acclaimed music legends as well as fresh and exciting up and comers, Tramlines takes a new format in 2017: the ninth edition will be an exclusively outdoor event, spanning three of Sheffield’s best park spaces thereby allowing the festival to bring its biggest lineup to date.

The decision to tweak the format came in response to event organisers listening to feedback from its festival goers. Tramlines Festival Director Sarah Nulty explains:

“After each festival, we turn to our audience to find out what they’d like to see at the next event. The overwhelming feedback was that people wanted to see bigger acts on the Tramlines stages. By streamlining Tramlines to three outdoor spaces, it’s meant we could deliver something really special. Sheffield is often hailed as an ‘Outdoor City’, and has a ton of public parks, and a third of it sits within the glorious Peak District National Park. It is the UK’s leading destination for people seeking outdoor adventure, and we are excited to present a large part of Tramlines 2017 as an outdoor event.”

These spaces include the lush Ponderosa Park home to the Main Stage and the Into The Trees stage; Devonshire Green situated right in the heart of the city centre and home to Stage 2, and the woodland setting of Endcliffe Park, home to the Folk Forest. Additionally for 2017, Tramlines has added the new Momentum Music Fund stage which will be held in the o2 Academy, and the Hallam Shuttle bus to transport people from Ponderosa Park to Endcliffe Park, including one-off performances and solo acts programmed and managed by Sheffield Hallam students.

As for stage breakdowns, the Main Stage will see The Libertines, Twin Atlantic, Primal Scream, We Are Scientists, Toots & The Maytals, Metronomy, The House Gospel Choir, Lady Leshurr and more all play across the weekend, while Devonshire Green will host Kano, The Pharcyde, All Saints, The Coral, The Big Moon and more. The Folk Forest is then the place to catch Cate Le Bon, Blaenavon, Omar Souleyman, The Magic Gang and Goat Girl.

Into The Trees, will feature The Reflex, a disco re-fixer who can claim Noel Gallagher as a fan and has material regularly played on BBC 6 Music by Craig Charles. Also performing is The Heatwave, a dancehall collective with a London twist on the traditional Jamaican sound; legend of the UK reggae scene, Don Letts, alongside multi-genre selectors, Reasons to be Cheerful Soundsystem, and Sheffield party starters, Thirsty Ear. Also performing is Alexander Nut, long time Rinse FM resident and boss of Eglo Records.

Artists performing on the Momentum Music Fund stage include London rapper, Ms Banks; Ghanaaian influenced singer songwriter, Mista Silva; experimental Bahrainians, Flamingods, and much more.

What’s more, Tramlines remains one of the best value UK festival tickets around, with weekend passes from just £45 plus booking fee. Tickets are on sale from www.tramlines.org.uk

Pier Jam Announces Part 2. Return to Blackpool North Pier!

Latest News, UK

Hot off the heels of its spectacular Bank Holiday Sunday event on 30th April, Pier Jam is delighted to announce the second instalment of its summer long series. Returning to the iconic Blackpool North Pier on Saturday 29th July, Pier Jam welcomes big hitters, Gorgon City, Shadowchild, Bugzy Malone, Mistajam, Redlight, Sonny Fodera, Josh Butler and Son of 8, to the bill across the outdoor stages delivering cuts of quality house, bass and garage music. From 2pm – 11pm stretched out to sea on the 500m long pier, Pier Jam has a vibe that’s unmatchable for miles around and is not to be missed. Tickets go on sale on Monday 8th May at 10am on www.skiddle.com

Galloping through its third year of throwing board-shaking parties, Pier Jam will once again welcome 4,000 party people to cut loose under a warm sun in the open air, right by the sea. Known for their killer sound systems and always on-point bookings, these now famous all-day parties are nothing less than awe inspiring affairs, set against the stunning backdrop of the world famous Blackpool Tower. From Basement Jaxx to DJ E.Z and MK to Amine Edge & DANCE, Pier Jam stages big names and even bigger tunes.

A huge selection of contemporary house heavyweights all line-up for the event on Saturday 29th July, and leading proceedings from the Black Butter Label is chart topping and crossover star, Gorgon City. His tracks like ‘Go All Night’ and ‘Zoom Zoom’ have been everywhere in recent times and are sure to sound massive under the sun. Joining him is Pier Jam favourite, Shadowchild, to bring the big booty shaking drums and rib-rattling synth lines that have made him a Dirtybird and Edible favourite.

Manchester’s much loved grime MC Bugzy Malone will also be on hand to drop some of his raw and edgy bars and plenty of the tracks he has put out on Ill Gotten Records, all of which have brought real freshness to the scene. Radio 1’s urban boss MistaJam will also play with his usual eclectic mix of bass heavy, attitude-laced tunes.
