Also on the bill were ska and reggae stars The Dualers, Missing Lady, Marquis Drive, Jungle Lion, The Assist, Benson and tribute bands Antartic Mokeys and Happy Mondaze.

Sheffield acts and emerging talent, always supported by the festival, this year included established acts like John Reilly's Boy On A Dolphin and hotly tipped local bands Oddity Road,The SSS, Sundance, The Velcro Teddy Bears, Spears, Sweet Little Machine and Doncaster’s Ginger Tom.

Now in its seventh year the festival has moved seven miles north after the original site became a building site. Steve chose the Bowl because of its transport links, proximity to the M1 and nearby hotels.

He also kept costs down after sharing the set-up for a separate concert on Friday night headlined by Milburn with special guests, Reverend and the Makers, Cabbage and Tom Grennan.
