THE DIRECTOR of Sheffield’s Tramlines Festival, Sarah Nulty, has died aged 36, after a short illness.

Nulty was instrumental in building the 30,000-capacity event from a venue-based, urban festival into a single-site event attracting artistes such as Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Pixie Lott, The xx, Public Enemy and The Libertines.

In a statement, her festival colleagues say, “Sarah dedicated her whole working career to the Sheffield music industry. After nearly two decades, this work has led to massive benefits for the city and she has been the driving force of Tramlines for many years.

“Her tenacity, vision and unbreakable work ethic are the reasons that the festival can celebrate its tenth anniversary.”

Nulty featured in LIVE UK’s Summing Up column in issue 221, last month,
