A band from Norwich shared the bill with the likes of Franz Ferdinand, the Pet Shop Boys, Morissey and Billy Idol at a major music festival.

Indie band, CThru27, played on the opening night of Exit 06, a four-day festival of modern world music in Serbia.

The annual festival of music in Novi Sad, the twin city of Norwich in the former Yugoslavia, has grown into a major world event in the music calendar.

Members of CThru27 were greeted by the president of Serbia, Boris Tadic, who welcomed them as artistic ambassadors of Norwich.

The band's participation in Exit is a musical element of the European town twinning scheme.

About 50 people travelled from Norwich.
