THOUSANDS of musical fans flocked to Kelburn at the weekend to cement the venue's festival at the top of the charts.

The three-day event offered some wonderfully diverse headliners as people came from across the UK to enjoy entertainment against the fairytale backdrop of Kelburn Castle.

Gaining a reputation among music circles as a 'colourful boutique festival not to be missed' the wide-ranging programme embraces techno, afrobeat, jazz, hip-hop, jungle, folk and house and a magical mystery tour.

Highlights included a very rare DJ set from UK jungle godfather-turned-actor/activist Goldie, acid house pioneer A Guy Called Gerald and 2017 SAY nominee Auntie Flo.

Attracting acts from Amsterdam, Sweden, Uganda and Paris, as well as number of other globetrotting acts, the event's popularity grows year on year.

New to the festival was the circus big-top, hosted by circus practitioners and performers ‘Let’s Circus’.
