This year’s event, which is free, had more bands, music, stalls, rides, refreshments and bar.

Kim Cousins, who lives in Rugby, was at the festival with family and friends.

She said: “I think it’s an amazing event, with good entertainment and a nice atmosphere.

“We briefly saw Tan.Trum who were brilliant. I think the organisers should be congratulated - especially as it’s free.”

Tasha Harris, 14, and Paige Wells, 14, said the sunny weather helped.

“We’re having a really good time,” said Tasha.

Paige added: “The music is good and we’re glad it’s sunny.”

Organiser David Head said the event was a success.

He said: “The weather was beautiful and the atmosphere was brilliant.

“It was enjoyed by people of all ages which was really nice to see.”

Dead Frequency headlined the event, with support from White Men Can’t Funk.

Other acts included Tan.Trum and Luciee Closier, a finalist on BBC’s The Voice last year.

On the acoustic stage was Rugby favourites Paper Street Soap Company.

“The police said they were very impressed with the festival and how well it had been organised,” added David.

“It was busy all day and I’d like to thank everybody who supported it.”

The festival helped raise funds for charity RP Fighting Blindness.
