Sheffield’s city music festival will be featuring their first-ever comedy stage, and to mark the 10th anniversary of the event they have teamed up with Abbeydale Brewery to launch an exclusive birthday beer which will be available to purchase over the time of the festival and across the city.

In the past 10 years the festival has included acts such as The Libertines, Primal Scream, Basement Jaxx and Catfish and the Bottlemen and this year is no different. This year is showcasing some of Sheffield’s finest bands, including Milburn, Reverend and the Makers and The Sherlocks. ‘It’s wonderful to see how the festival has grown. It’s great for the city. Brings everyone some much-needed dosh in as well as cementing our place as an important musical city. Long may it continue’, says Jon McClure, lead singer of iconic Sheffield band ‘Reverend and the Makers’ who performed at the first tramlines in 2009 and will be performing this weekend!
