ORGANISERS hailed the weekend's inaugural ReVamp Festival as a huge success.

More than 1,400 people flocked to Oakfield Primary School on Sunday, to see local artists play.

Against the backdrop of rolling fields and a picturesque view of the sea, families enjoyed a day of music, fun and games.

"It was about allowing Island bands to showcase their talent, and the bumper crowd was not left disappointed," said event organiser, Barrie Wade.

"To think that we got such a big turnout on first attempt is absolutely incredible."

Bands ranged from Wight Hot Pipes, who played Glastonbury the previous evening, to Vote Pedro's Mexican madness and the Rockafellas, who were a huge crowd favourite.

Rockafellas frontman, Lewis Shepperd, even scaled a barrier and danced with the crowd for the band's penultimate song.

"It was awesome," said Lewis.

"We had a great time, everyone got up and danced ­— got involved ­— it was great family fun."

As well as the Main Stage, the Acoustic Stage also featured a variety of Island talent, including Greg Barnes, hailing from Ventnor, and up and coming artist, Liam Burke.

Acoustic Stage manager and performer, Greg Barnes, said: "It was an amazing event, and it's got a lot of potential. It was a great turnout, and hopefully it will be even bigger and better next year."

Foo Fighterz ­closed the show as the sun began to set, capping off a successful day.

Organisers have thanked Vikkie Reader and Oakfield Primary for believing in the event, and the 20-strong team of volunteers who worked for free to cover the event.
