ROCKERS and soul fans danced the night away as thousands enjoyed the variety of music on show at Gosport’s Waterfront Festival over the weekend.

Organisers say they expect around 22,000 people to have packed out Walpole Park over the four-day event.

Headliners over the weekend included Thunderstruck, Doctor and the Medics, Hidden Agenda and Junior.

One of the organisers, Dave Smith, said: ‘It’s been very good so far, especially considering how many other events there were at the weekend.

‘Everyone has really been getting into the spirit of it and there has been lots of dancing.’

The final day of the festival takes place today – and in keeping with the Diamond Jubilee it has a royal theme.

Visitors are asked to dress in the spirit of the Queen to enjoy performances from the likes of Pick Floyd, Bubblegum and Cheese, and the Glam City Rockers.

‘We’re expecting a bumper crowd tonight, and to be at full capacity,’ Dave added.

‘It’s always a very popular event because we cater for all music tastes – there’s no other festival that does that.’

Entry into the Waterfront Festival costs just £1. Performances start at 1pm to 11pm.
