The line-up for this year's Beccles Harvest Moon Music Festival has been announced.
Now in its tenth year, the festival will be held at Beccles Quay from noon to dusk on Saturday, August 12, providing a free, family day out for residents from Waveney and beyond.
Kicking off the entertainment will be acoustic performer Jack Ferris, taking to the stage at 12pm. He will be followed by three-piece band Falling From Trees at 12.45pm.
Next up will be singer/songwriter Matt Watson at 1.25pm, followed by all-female jazz and soul string group Late Nights/Early Mornings at 2.05pm, and the Lowestoft Longshoremen playing shanty songs at 2.50pm.
Thirteen-year-old Tom Mackinson will be in the spotlight at 3.30pm, with four-piece blues rock band The Fools Moon performing at 4pm and rock n roll pop band Covered playing at 4.45pm.
Duo Amandinus will take to the stage at 5.25pm performing blues, rock and country, followed by rock/indie band Truescape at 6.10pm, before the festival comes to a close with Killing Floor playing the final set from 7.15pm.
The event is once again being organised by Beccles Community Arts, a volunteer committee which is also raising funds to build a permanent community stage at the quay.

Chairman Jula Janney said: 'Last year we had a brilliant day with fantastic music and wonderful weather. It's going to be the same full house this year, but with even more stalls and rides and a line-up of musicians to please everyone, and we anticipate the crowds will be even larger than 2016 - and that was pretty large!.
'So don't forget to pack up your chairs, blankets, even bring a picnic if you wish, and get down to Beccles Quay and claim your spot for the afternoon's entertainment.'
As well as the music there will be food stalls, children's games and rides, plants and various other stalls, as well as the popular beer tent run by The Butchers Arms in Beccles.
Dogs are welcome and free parking is available at the quay.
The committee is also in need of more volunteers on the day. Anyone who is able to help can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01502 717098.
