Last time this column went online, we were pleased to hear that The Leadmill had bagged itself a prestigious industry award. Well, now every other venue in Sheffield can celebrate too, because this year’s Tramlines festival, which they all helped to make happen, has won a gong of its own. The enormous three-day event was named as Best Metropolitan Festival at the UK Festival Awards. Although it’s only three years old, it beat the likes of The Great Escape and Camden Crawl to the prize, thanks to its mind-bogglingly diverse bill of local, national and international acts, it’s incomprehensible scale and the fact that it doesn’t cost you, the discerning live music fan, a single penny. Roll on 2012!
