THERE were good vibes only in a Mold field during this year's North Wales Blues and Soul Festival.

Established in 2014, the festival attracts crowds of more than 2,000 - and this year was no different.

Crowds gathered to hear some quality music by headliner James Hunter, a soul singer revered by critics in both his native UK and stateside.

Kendrick's Field, "set right in the heart of Mold," say organisers, was home to dozens of acts throughout the whole weekend.

The festival kick-started on Friday at 5.30pm with performances from Blues Face, Burning Black, Bobcat Billy's Moonshine Mission, and Brilleaux.

The Revolutionaries, Alexis Evans, Dale Storr and Greg Coulson wowed crowds, alongside other acts on Saturday.

The final day of the festival opened with Mr Hugh Price at midday, and ending in style with James Hunter Six as the final act on the glorious August day.

Dave Hill, Mold Town Centre Manager said: "It's been very hot, but everybody has said they've enjoyed a cold beer in the sun.

"Certainly everyone has enjoyed it, people have come from all over the Uk, which is all in the virtue of the town. It's been enjoyed by local people as well.

"People said they loved Mold Market,. The music has been first class.

"We could have done with more people but that's always the case with things like this.

"It's been a very nice weekend and and everybody that has been has really enjoyed the festival and their visit to Mold."
