The number of tickets sold for this year’s Tramlines music festival is to be revealed by organisers tomorrow.

Attendance figures will also be published after the event – the sixth Tramlines – took place over the weekend.

Blazing sunshine helped draw in bumper crowds for the festival, so much so that the main stage on Devonshire Green had to be temporarily closed to entry as it was at its capacity of 6,600 people.

A Tramlines spokesman said: “Ticket sales and attendance figures will be published on Wednesday. We have decided to not rush the figures.”

Police praised the good ‘buzzing’ atmosphere around the city during the festival.

They have since confirmed six people were apprehended, and five were arrested, for minor public disorder offences and possession of drugs over the three days.

Police also used orders to make revellers leave an area as a preventative tool to disperse people.

Headliners at this year’s festival included Katy B, Public Enemy and Sister Sledge, with organisers booking bigger acts to encourage people to pay the £12-a-day cost of a ticket.
