Let's Rock Norwich! will return to the city.
That was the promise from one of the organisers of the retro 1980s music festival which is playing to a sell out crowd of 15,000 people today.
The event on Earlham Park is part of a nationwide tour and has attracted groups of friends, couples and families of all ages from across the county and beyond.
Steve Haywood, marketing manager for UK Live - the Berkshire firm behind Let's Rock Norwich! - said: 'This has been a success and as far as we are concerned we will be coming back to Norwich next year.
'It has gone really well. We are full to capacity and we couldn't be happier. Everyone is having a good party.

He described Earlham Park as 'very picturesque'.
