Beautiful Days revellers laughed in the face of rain to party hard over the weekend.
The popular family-friendly music festival, organised by The Levellers, held at Escot Park, near Ottery St Mary, from August 16-18, boasted a packed line-up promising something for everyone.
Festival fun for the young and old was on tap all weekend at the three-day party that never sleeps.
Those at Beautiful Days with their children were offered plenty to do, with a host of activities, crafts, games and music for the younger audience.
A Beautiful Days spokesperson said: “Our ethos has always been to offer not only the best in live music today, but to re-create a community spirit that many events nowadays lack.
“This event is about people young and old coming together and taking part in something that will be remembered for a long time.”
Rain failed to stop play on Friday; the sun shone over the weekend, cranking up the party atmosphere until Sunday’s festival finale of The Levellers and fireworks display brought the 2019 revelry to a close.
Each year Beautiful Days celebrates Sunday with a theme; a sea of colour and costumes as festival-goers dress to impress.
This year’s costumes were a magical mix of fairies, dragons, witches and wizards; imaginations ran riot and the festival field came alive with mythical creatures, fairy-tale characters and enchanted animals, with plenty of glitter and sparkle thrown in for good measure.
The three-day music festival always delivers a packed and varied line-up guaranteed to please all music tastes, and this year was no exception.
With the 2019 main stage acts of Skunk Anansie, Ziggy Marley – Bob Marley’s eldest son – and The Stranglers, it comes as no surprise that fans of the festival keep a close eye on the Beautiful Days website and pounce as soon as tickets are on sale.
Such is the popularity of the award-winning festival, tickets for the 2019 event sold out nearly a month in advance and organisers warned of disappointment for those hoping to gain on-the-gate entry.
This year the family festival celebrated its 17th birthday, while festival founders, The Levellers, recently marked the band’s 30th anniversary.
