Tonight the festival will go with a bang - fireworks follow Sheffield Philharmonic Orchestra and United The union Brass Band at The Botanical Gardens.

Last night it was the turn of Sheffield’s own electro legends Heaven 17, who sold out the event with guests The Bootleggers.

Keyboard wizard Martyn Ware, who also formed the Human League, and frontman Glenn Gregory entertained with Heaven 17’s greatest hits - including show stopper, Temptation.

Drawing the series of concerts to a close, Sunday (July 20, 2014) will see Ladysmith Black Mambazo take to the stage as well as the Dore Male Voice Choir.
