“I think we have some great artists this year that span generations. Courteeners, Chic, Rag’n’Bone Man, The Manics, Miles Kane are all on my list to catch over the weekend and there are more to come too, including, as usual, some great Sheffield Favourites and new talent. I can’t wait for July, it’s going to be awesome and I hope everyone will join us for Sheffield’s Biggest Party.”
