Co-organiser Greg Smith, 27 from Buxton, was thrilled with the turnout. He said: “We looked up saw so many people enjoying the music and it felt incredible to know we had achieved it.”

Working with his brother, Elliot, the duo were approached by The Crescent to put on the event after a smaller gig took place in 2014.

Greg said: “We performed here and wanted to showcase bands and their original talent.

“We received more than 100 entries and it was fun sorting out the line-up making it eclectic and diverse.”
Whiskeyordnen travelled from Denmark other bands came from as far as London and Glasgow and Buxton based The Indieannas also took to the stage.
