Sheffield’s biggest party is underway - and advance ticket sales are already soaring above expectations.
Crowds of revellers are flocking to the city centre for the start of Tramlines, which includes around 500 acts over three days.
Festival-goer Karl Swift, aged 23, from Harworth near Doncaster, said: “It’s my first time at Tramlines. The whole city feels more vibrant and everybody is out in their T-shirts and shorts.”
Festival director Sarah Nulty told The Star advance ticket sales were up by 40 per cent and the festival had its ‘best line-up it has ever had’ this year.
Some of the first to take to the stage were singer Beth McCarthy, who performed at the Frog and Parrot pub on Division Street, and city favourite The Everly Pregnant Brothers at the Fat Cat in Kelham Island.
Sheffield act Toddla T, Ms Dynamite and Katy B are also due on the main stage on Devonshire Green tonight.
