THOUSANDS of people attended this year’s Corbridge Festival in glorious sunshine.

While the main stage was the place to find all the big names, there was plenty to enjoy at the festival’s two smaller stages.

The Dragonfly Stage, named after the festival’s charity partner the Dragonfly Cancer Trust, showcased alternative acts such as Indie band Only the Pets and local lad Sam Shields.

Meanwhile the Northern Exposure Stage was on hand to reveal undiscovered local talent.

The music started at 4pm on Friday, with North-East Balkan Ska band and legendary pop-rockers the Baghdaddies delighting fans.

On Saturday, the searing sun brought swarms of festival-goers to enjoy the likes of The Futureheads and the Fun Lovin’ Criminals.

Huge crowds watched legendary DJ Panjabi MC, while the unique style of beatboxers Bloxed Beats was enough to see them perform to a packed out crowd not once, but twice on two stages.

Organiser Cheryl Durkin was full of praise for the festival and the acts.

She said: “Probably my favourite act was Reef – they’re masters of their craft. The Baghdaddies and Panjabi MC really engaged with the audience and went down really well. It’s really clear and obvious how good Bloxed Beats are at what they do.

“We’re attracting lovely people. It was a chilled, relaxed, and fun event. I’m really proud of it. Everything aligned on the day.”
