A pair of north Kent girls played their debut gig at the Wireless Festival, attended by tens of thousands of people.
Ciara Tutty, 21, from Gravesend, and 22-year-old Ellie Crooks, from Istead Rise, make up Diamonds in the Rough and performed in the E20 Chill Out Zone in Stratford’s Queen Elizabeth Park.
They played two half-hour slots before enjoying the rest of the festival on Friday (July 12).
Afterwards, Ellie said: “That was just amazing - what a buzz.
“It is surreal that this is our first gig. When we started we couldn’t imagine things getting so big so fast but it shows anything is possible with some ambition and a bit of hard work.”
Ciara added: “What a fantastic experience. I really enjoyed that and can’t wait for our next gig now.”
