Music fans had a blast when the Woodzstock Festival returned for another day of fab acts and top talent at the weekend.

Organisers were delighted with the success of the annual musical extravaganza, with the weather holding for almost the entirety of the day-long event, despite questionable forecasts heading in.

Headline acts Altern 8, The Laurettes and The Supernaturals all went down a treat with fans, as too did the many local acts on the bill.

Organiser Ross Smith said: “We had an amazing day. The weather was fantastic. It only finally started raining when our final headliners Altern 8 were on. But nobody cared and were still dancing away.

He added: “It was a good turnout. Everyone had a great time. We were very pleased.

“The Laurettes were absolutely fantastic and had everyone dancing, as too did the Supernaturals and Altern8. In fact the three headliners were all really on point and we were really pleased with that - and every act in the haybarn blew me away. They were all different.”

He said a “special mention” also had to go Fair Trickit, who he said had been on top form for their set.

Fans who missed out on the fun need not despair either, for a date has already been confirmed for the return of Woodzstock at the Wildwoodz Adventure Park next summer.

The 2025 festival will take place on June 14, and tickets are expected to go on sale soon.
