Music fans braved an afternoon downpour to catch X Factor winner Matt Cardle live in Bedlington.
Cardle took to the Gallagher Park stage at around 8pm, following rain in the late afternoon.
Cardle, who won X Factor in 2010, was joined on the bill by Newcastle singer Channy, the Midnight Soul Sisters and pop punk group 5K.
The future of the under threat festival had been in doubt, but went ahead following donations from councillors and East Bedlington and Choppington's parish councils.
East Bedlington Parish Council chairman Keith Grimes said: "There was a real danger that the festival would not happen this year. We are well aware of how much this free event means to our community and we believed as a parish council that they deserved to have it."
