Tramlines to name stage after late festival director Sarah Nulty

Organisers of Tramlines have announced its main stage is to be renamed Nulty’s Main Stage in honour of late festival director Sarah Nulty.

Nulty (pictured) died last year at the age of 36, just three weeks before the 10th anniversary of the Sheffield event, which returns to Hillsborough Park from July 19-21 with headliners Two Door Cinema Club, Courteeners and Nile Rodgers & Chic.

Nulty was instrumental in the launch of the Sheffield city centre event in 2009 and took on the role of festival director six years ago. 

Tramlines Festival organiser, Danielle Gigg said: “Sarah was the driving force behind the festival, so it felt completely fitting to rename the main stage in her honour and as a memorial for everything she’s done for us. We will continue to raise money for Weston Park Cancer Charity and Cavendish Cancer Care who both helped her so much.”

This year's event will also see the return of the backstage Nulty’s Bar, and brand new BeMoreNulty merchandise, designed by Sheffield’s own artist, Tom J Newell. All profits will go to Cavendish Cancer Care and Weston Park Cancer Charity.

More than £30,000 was raised for both Cavendish Cancer Care and Weston Park Cancer Charity in 2018 for from the backstage Nulty’s Bar and the sales of the BeMoreNulty merchandise, designed in association with Dropdead Clothing. 

Nulty was posthumously honoured with the Outstanding Contribution Award at last year's Independent Festival Awards.
