The “Tramlines Festival” saw Sheffield undergo massive economic gain during the three day event in the city centre.
The music festival took place on 23rd, 24th and 25th of July, in which the main stage on “Devonshire Green” was expanded to hold 8,000 people, 3,000 more than last year.
Liberal Democrat council leader Paul Scriven commented that “Tramlines has shown to be a great urban musical festival that has had a serious economic impact”.
“City Centre Businesses said the tills were ringing at up to 100% more than normal”.
Sheffield “Tramlines Festival” described itself this year as a “Free Urban Music Festival”, which incorporated 50 city centre venues.
Paul Scriven went on to explain that “Crime Rates Fell”. He also added that “People saw great bands and had an outstanding party. Tramlines is here to stay”.
