An array of more than 50 musicians appeared at venues dotted all over the city, from the Norfolk and Norwich Millennium Library and Norwich Arts Centre to pubs including The Murderers and the Playhouse.
Running alongside was a series of conferences and debates which put a spotlight on working in music, radio, TV, film and multi-media industries.
It came to a close on Saturday night with a performance from headliners Let's Eat Grandma.
