THOUSANDS of revellers from across the country descended on a racecourse for a three-day long music festival.
Mutiny Festival which was held at Fontwell Park, near Chichester, was hailed a success by party-goers who enjoyed sets from legendary rapper Snoop Dogg, as well as Chase and Status, Katy B and Rebel Sound.
The crowd went wild for Snoop’s early Saturday afternoon set, which was put back by 45 minutes to allow festival-goers who were still queueing enough time to get in and to see the hip hop legend perform.
Dan Cameron, 18, from Fareham, said: ‘We’re camping here and, from the moment we arrived, it’s been amazing.
‘Silent Disco on the Friday night was incredible.
‘It’s so brilliant to have something like this on our doorstep. I think everyone is amazed that Snoop is here. Everyone was so excited.’

Paul Appleton and girlfriend Joanne Ives, 43, celebrated Paul’s 44th birthday at the festival.
Joanne, from Portsmouth, said: ‘We came to see Snoop Dogg and it’s been absolutely amazing.
‘Everyone is really nice, friendly, there’s been no trouble.
‘It’s been amazing.’
About 15,000 people attended the festival which was not welcomed by some parts of the community.
Residents in Fontwell campaigned to stop it going ahead but organiser Luke Betts hailed it a success.
Despite this, Mutiny will be ‘coming home’ to Portsmouth next year.
It will be staged over the second May Bank Holiday weekend on King George V playing fields in Cosham.
