Share your experiences of the incredible opening weekend

On Friday and Saturday night crowds peaked as The Lower Gardens came alight with the extraordinary Compagnie Carabosse’s amazing fire sculptures and mesmerising music.

The response from the crowds and people online was incredible so everyone who was lucky enough to be there – thanks for sending on your brilliant photos and videos.

On the Pier Approach, Fuel’s The Roof impressed with their six busy outdoor dance performances, full of sheer physicality and all on a specially built set. The other busiest points were Saturday and Sunday afternoon when the Festival was in full swing, with The Square Goes Vintage even adding extra acts on the Sunday afternoon.

Both days the Lower Gardens was chock-a-block with people joining in with the fun family shows such as the musically minded Clunk and the superbly silly The Lift.
