Breif – Tramlines
The Tramlines Festival is an annual music festival held in Sheffield. The festival has in the past been free to attend, and the line-up consists of national and local artists. The festival is curated and organised by a panel comprising local venue owners, promoters and volunteers. The name of the festival is inspired by the city’s tram network. Tramlines held its first festival in 2009, which attracted 35,000 fans and was seen as a huge success, and 2010’s event doubled that figure. Tramlines 2011 took place between Friday 22 and Sunday 24 July. The success of Tramlines Festival 2011 led to the event winning ‘Best Metropolitan Festival’ at the UK Festival Awards.
The festival takes place at over 70 venues and 4 main stages in the city centre, including The Leadmill, The Viper Rooms, The Fat Cat, O2 Academy Sheffield, Barkers Pool, The University of Sheffield, The Harley, The Bowery, the Peace Gardens and the main stage at Ponderosa Park with a capacity of 8,000.
Tramlines is a huge music festival hosting big names and upcoming bands/artists. I think its so popular because of the large variety of music and the fact that a lot of them art known well. This gives you a chance to see the upcoming talent.
Staff T-shirt Design
I decided to keep my colours light as the festival is set in the summer time and should be looked at in a bright way.

For my Webpage example home page i used a light blue background and kept with my two main colours blue and orange. I like to use these colours throughout my designs to keep it consistent.
