CROWDS in their thousands found their good mood melodies at a sun-baked music festival with something for everyone.
Organisers estimate 2,000 or more could enjoy the Mello Festival in Upton over the May Bank Holiday weekend.
Steve High, public relations manager for the event, said this was the third year it had taken place and it was growing in popularity.
"The weather has been fantastic. We have been blessed by it and we needed it because the ground had been so wet," he said.
Running from Friday until Sunday, Mello had a line-up to suit every taste from the Hoosiers, Reef and Huey Morgan to Driffta, Lady Marga MC, Cassa Jackson, Aston Merrygold and Blue.
The momentum carried forward into Sunday with the Leylines, Dodgy, Rebecca Ferguson, Fleur East and Brand New Heavens.
The Reggae and Rum stage was an interesting addition to the mix with acts like Kingsley and the Big Fish Band, Ruff Trade, Troy Ellis and His Hall Jamaica Band, Rootstone, Irie Fire and the Manor.
This year there were four stages including a main stage. The warm weather meant Dean Clarke of Dean's Ices, selling ice creams, was a popular destination.
Mr Clarke said: "We have been busy with a good, friendly crowd."
The emphasis was very much on family fun with inflatables, archery, a nine hole golf course, a circus tent and free activities for children.
Steve Kaos, the circus entertainer, proved a hit as people of all ages enjoyed juggling, trying their hand on a unicycle or the hula hoop.
In total Mello had 40 traders and eight charity stalls. Michael Lawrence (Captain America) and Allen Spatcher (Thor) of the 'Avengingers' added a super-charged dimension to their fundraising for St Michael's Hospice in Hereford.
The hospice cared for Mr Lawrence's mum in her last days and is a charity close to his heart. The pair hoped they would raise at least £1,000 for the hospice.
Owen Lowe, the Radio Wyvern breakfast presenter, kept things running smoothly on the main stage and made sure there was never a dull moment for the crowds, acting as a DJ between the performances.
He said: "The atmosphere has been absolutely amazing and as for the weather, we could not have been luckier really. It has been scorching and everyone has been so happy. They have been dancing their socks off. It has been a fantastic weekend."
