Popular 90s pop band 911 headlined on the main stage with tribute bands such as Pink and Michael Jackson.

The festival was split in to four main areas which provided entertainment and activities for families including donkey rides, a vintage fair, bird of prey displays, live music, rock climbing, the greatest showman singalong, circus shows and more.

Council leader David Turner said: “I think the council officers should be proud that they organised such an amazing, well attended, event.

“As one of the biggest free music festivals in Kent there was lots to do for children and adults alike and there was smiles and laughter all round. “It is great that local performers were able to take part as well, and what an opportunity to perform on a stage overlooking the river in front of thousands.”
