Thousands of people have flocked to an Aberdeen park for a two-day music extravaganza.
The Enjoy Music Festival kicked off at Hazlehead Park with a host of acts, including Faithless, Cast, Digital Love and Mark Morriss of The Bluetones.
Now in its fourth year, the event is showcasing acts from around the UK as well as the north-east.
Temperatures on the first day topped out at around 20C and organisers are hoping today’s line-up will attract families as well as music fans.
Marketing director Mark Lenthall said expanding the event from one day to two is a sign that there is a real appetite for the event in the Granite City.
He said: “It’s the first time we’ve done two days. It’s quite a commitment but I’m hoping, from yesterday’s turn-out already, that it’s a good start to the weekend.
“We have some great local acts and some really great headliners – so we have an exciting weekend ahead.”
Today’s event, which was kicking off from 1pm, features DJ sets from chart toppers Sigma and Basement Jaxx, and a performance by Starsailor.
Mark added: “We’ll see more families for today’s event, with kids being off school they can come down with their parents.
“We’ll have more happening in the family area.
“We’ve got Love Rara who do wonderful work with children’s characters and they’re running a whole lot of activities on the family entertainment stage.”
Music fans who were soaking up the sun and the fun atmosphere yesterday said Enjoy Music Festival was a great addition to the city’s cultural calendar.
Brandon Knott, 22, from Cove, said: “I’ve been to other festivals in the past, but this is the first time I decided to come out to Enjoy.
“I’m looking forward to watching my mate who’s in the band The Capollos.
“It’s going to be a good time – enjoying some good weather and some good food.”
Sonja Tiesmaki, from Old Aberdeen, said she was most looking forward to the Rare and Nothing More to Say dance tent.
She said: “It’s a nice place to go and chill out for a bit, it won’t be as hectic. I’ll be back and hopefully will get to see Basement Jaxx’s set.”
Sean Douglas, 29, from Blairgowrie, said: “This is my first time coming to Enjoy and so far it’s been good.”
Mark said organisers were hopeful they will beat last year’s attendance figures of 6,000.
He added: “With two days, I’m thinking we’ll have a good chance of beating last year’s number.
“We’re open from 1pm on Saturday so it’s an event for the whole day where you can have some food and listen to some music.
“I’m excited to see Goldie Lookin Chain.”
In the line-up for the main stage today are: Dead Shadows, Michael Forsyth, Full Fat, Cold Years, The Capollos, Colonel Mustard and The Dijon 5, Nigel Clark (Dodgy), Goldie Lookin Chain, Starsailor and Sigma.
