A WARM Winter’s Day promised to heat up the Coffs’ Coast over the weekend and it certainly did its job.

While the day started out with blue skies and sunshine, the wet set in later in the afternoon – not that the crowd noticed.

Thousands of music lovers seemed oblivious to the rain as artists Miami Horror, Ashton Shuffle and Illy kept them bopping.

“It was an awesome day, really good, and everyone was really well behaved,” event organiser Jeff Moss said.

“The weather didn’t seem to dampen anyone’s spirits.

“It really started raining in the afternoon but no one left, which was great.”

Mr Moss said definite highlights of the event were the three main acts.

“The bands were great and they all loved it.

“All of them said Coffs Harbour really knows how to have fun,” he said.

“I was really happy everyone had fun.

“The police were really great.”

The all-ages, licensed event attracted a huge cross-section of people, with both youngsters and over 18s enjoying the market stalls, lighting shows and great music on offer.

“We’ll definitely be back next year,” Mr Moss said.
