Crown of Lights Festival Heckmondwike was buzzing with enthusiasm and pulsating to the music of Mucky Blond a versatile indie rock band from Doncaster at the time of our arrival.
The Troubadors next had the festival audience cheering clapping and dancing with their rousing rocking rhythmic Americano.
Then it was Chris Martin's turn to entertain and stir the Crown of Light crowd who responded to his humour and music enthusiastically.
Next on stage was Miseria Lost, a Sheffield band who gave a very stylish performance which had the audience dancing and wanting more. The Lead singer kindly gave us an interview which you can see here.
Misera Lost was followed by Further From The Truth who hail from Wakefield, 'though some band members told us they were from far-flung outposts of Wales and Leeds! The lead guitarist, James, was also the sound-man for a large part of the festival. Interview below.
We were very fortunate to have an interview with Donal O'Driscoll the festival organiser and compère for the past 4 years. Catch this must-see interview below.
Rounding off the evening's entertainment was Commonside from Dewsbury. A very energetic band who had much of the crowd on their feet swaying and dancing to the music.
The weather, which had been sunny all day, became wet and overcast but this seemed to have not the slightest impression on the crowd who just opened umbrellas and kept on dancing. When the rain stopped again the smiles just kept on coming.
Young and old all enjoyed themselves in good spirits and communal fellowship and respect
Well done to all involved with the organisation, Donal O'Driscol main co-ordinator and his team; Peter Earnshaw principle sound engineer and his team of sound technicians, and all the stewards and background staff who are usually only noticed when things go wrong!
The Yorkshire Gig Guide had a brilliant evening and is looking forward to the next time.
