An abundance of musical talent congregated in Oulton Broad to celebrate the lives of two popular local people.
In an event that paid tribute to music-lovers Chris Hardman and Ellie Savage, 12 hours of live music was on offer at the Flying Dutchman.
Mr Hardman, who achieved fame as Lil Chris, lost his battle with mental illness in 2015, aged 25, while Lowestoft schoolgirl Ellie died from a brain tumour aged 14 in 2002.
Abby Clarke, Mr Hardman's cousin, said: 'It's great to have happy events like this. That's what Chris and Ellie would have wanted.
'All sorts of people came down and the turnout was really good.'
The day was organised by Peter Redwood, who helped shape the event in previous years.
'It was nice to see loads of people come and see local artists,' said Mr Redwood.
