"Town and city festivals happen a lot abroad but in the UK it's only just starting to happen. A lot of festivals, sadly, are put on for financial gain but Tramlines looks like it's really something to get the community together and I think that's fantastic."
"It costs 24p per person in the city. When you think we're going to have a great urban Glastonbury and thousands of people can come free of charge and enjoy music, celebrate and have a great time… it's money well spent and Sheffield does benefit.
"There's the national exposure, fun on the streets, a feeling of friendliness... It gives a great buzz to the city, gets us recognised internationally and allows talented local people to showcase what they're made of."
