Pre-Tramlines Excitement


I can't contain it. I've been a little bundle of excitement and giggles all week; very unlike me but it's true. Not only does the weather make me insanely happy, it's the weekend Sheffield has been waiting for since last year....TRAMLINES!!!

For those of you that don't know/don't live near Sheffield/don't live in the UK...Tramlines is a yearly inner city festival that Sheffield hosts - the likes of We Are Scientists, Toddla T, Simian Mobile Disco, The Mystery Jets, Shy FX, Example, The XX and Pixie Lott have all performed here. Tramlines began in 2009, named after Sheffield's famous trams, attracting thousands of visitors in its first year with the figures rising each year. This year, unfortunately, they have had to charge...good news, the fee is tiny - £6 per day or a special online weekend price for around £15. 

This is a VERY small selection of this years line up...

And the weather is going to be HOT HOT HOT all weekend.

So this leads to my Pre-Tramlines prep - weather appropriate clothing, suncream and staying hydrated! Undoubtedly so many people will forget about suncream, drink too much and not think to get any shade in the day therefore - overheat. 

If you are going this weekend, or to any festival/event in these weather conditions - drink PLENTY of water, make sure you put suncream on regularly (sunburn not only is dangerous - you need to have appropriate sun protection; it hurts but it isn't easy on the eye either)....and wear clothes that won't leave you with dodgy tan lines! Nobody likes a t-shirt tan! 

Also, don't forget to eat little and often to keep those energy levels up. And, a good excuse to keep cool and have a cheeky treat - ice creams and ice lollies will keep you cool. Is that the sound of the ice cream van I hear?

Have a brilliant weekend wherever you are and whatever you're doing!
