On Friday, this involved performances from The Coast and Imperial Wax, whilst doors opened on Saturday for the 'Next Gen - The Future of Music' event.

This involved singers, bands and DJs aged 12 and up taking to the stage to show off their talents.

A spokesperson from BUMS said: "We haven't quite processed what happened this weekend.

"To say we are proud is an understatement - the future of music, round here, is definitely buzzing and looking super bright."
