Sheffield's annual Tramlines Festival has officially kicked off for 2015.`

The main stage at Ponderosa Park played host to the very first act of Tramlines 2015 tonight as genre-crossing hip hop/electronic act Ghostpoet thrilled music fans.

The cowds were impressed with first act Ghostpoet as he delivered a rocking set full of energy along with a full backing band.

Josh Levin, aged 20, from Leeds, said: "I was very impressed. Ghostpoet was really good and the whole band was ace too.

"I have been a fan since his first album and he didn't disappoint."
