So it all seems to have gone off OK. The world didn't end after all. Loads of people came to a big event in Sheff, had a good time and spent money in local businesses.

Paid? As far as I am aware no payment had to be made, they merely had to comply with a few things including a coordinated social media posting. Who told you they had to pay?

 

My apologies for not being clear. Listings in the programme we’re not free.

As for your”Who told you they had to pay?” demand? It was the venue in which I spent much of the weekend.

Who told you they merely had to comply with a few things?

( please sense the rhetorical nature of my last line)

I would rather not state which venue as they werent happy with the veiled threats to licenses made in emails from the Police/SCC over the whole thing.

I heard on Fosters show that they've had reports of "interesting" taxi fares around the event.

We paid £25 to get to town after. 4 Surge!

 

 

 

Anyway, just wanted to add my two penneth - I was one of the biggest moaners about the disruption it would cause. Well, it didn't at all! I invited a friend round on Friday to listen on the garden and we couldn't hear it! I had no problem parking at all and the incentives for collecting litter at the event were spot on.

 

Well done all - roll on next year!

I think the organiser should be congratulated. It must be years since over 35,000 people have gathered in one venue at Hillsborough.

 

Well done and good luck for next year.

So there we have it.

 

After all the moaning, whining, fake news, and predictions of disaster, the festival passed off with very little incident and was enjoyed by tens of thousands with even the rain failing to dampen peoples' spirits. What this success means is that the organisers should have no trouble obtaining a licence for next year's event.

 

Looks like Tramlines has finally found a permanent home for the main event.

 

Well done to all involved! :)
