Hundreds of music fans flocked to the family-friendly event at Nicholas Everitt Park, in Oulton Broad on the last weekend of June.

Following last year's success of the Norwich Nearly Festival, the two-day summer event sold out with festival organisers warning tickets would not be sold at the door.

In a post to Facebook, a spokesperson for the festival organisers warned of ticket scammers at the event.

"Please be careful of scammers we have already caught a couple and have just been advised of more," they said.
