SHEFFIELD, UK (CelebrityAccess) — Sarah Nulty, the director of the popular Tramlines Festival in Sheffield, passed away just weeks ahead of the 2018 edition of the event. She was 36.
A post to the festival’s social media page announced Nulty’s passing
It is with great sadness that we must announce that our Festival Director, Sarah Nulty, has passed away at the age of 36 following a brief illness.
Many of you may never have had the pleasure of meeting Tramlines’ very own Wonder Woman, but thousands of you have attended the festival Sarah dedicated her working life to. Tramlines would not exist as the festival we all know and love today without her hard graft, passion, and generosity, and for that we are eternally thankful.
Sarah was our friend, our mentor, our go-to person in time of crisis – nothing would phase her. She was kind and feisty and had such an infectious laugh. At Tramlines, she’d stay out all night at the after parties and then be on litter picking duties on site by 8am – her energy was unfathomable. For all this and so much more, we deeply and sorely miss her.
We want to celebrate everything Sarah did for Tramlines and for the music scene in Sheffield. She will always be our fearless leader.
Miss Nulty was a co-founder of the festival and a key figure in the local music scene and her passing evoked an outpouring of tributes on social media.
