MUSIC lovers descended in their thousands to make an annual festival another roaring success.

Around 3,800 revellers danced and sang the day and night away at Restricted Forest at Blackburn’s Witton Park on Saturday.

Festival-goers travelled from as far as Birmingham and Newcastle to enjoy acts on four stages ranging from Endor to headliner Hannah Wants and K-Klass.

Chief organiser Zander Lawrenson described the day as a huge success.

The 27-year-old, from Darwen, said: “It really was unreal.

“The weather was great and we had a great turnout.

“The event keeps getting bigger and better every year.”

Party-goers said they had an enjoyable experience at the festival which has been running since 2017.

Lynn Holden, 47, from Darwen, who came to the event with her sister Deborah Holden, 44, from Darwen, said: “We came last year and liked it and it’s the same this year.

"There’s no trouble and people are here to enjoy the music.

"The rain has stayed away this year also.”

Paris Howarth, 29, from Burnley, who attended the festival with her friend Alex Gregson, 24, from Great Harwood, said: “We’ve never been before but we think it’s a great event.

"We enjoy music festivals and this one is no different.”

Grace Wilson, 28, who travelled all the way down from Newcastle with her friend Dave Brown, 35, said: “It’s been a really good and popular event.

“People have been queuing to get in.”

Jack Smith, 31, from Blackpool, added: “It’s the first time I’ve been to the event and it’s been okay so far and hopefully it will get busier.
