A SELL-out music festival raised the roof in glorious sunshine in Mold this afternoon (May 5).

Live on the Square, organised by Mold Town Council and held at Daniel Owen Square, returned today with a host of bands and singers performing.

Running from 12.30pm until 9.30pm tonight, the line-up included Mold’s own 50 Hertz, who this year donated their appearance fee to North East Wales Search and Rescue.

Meanwhile, The Establishment made their third appearance at the square, while four-piece covers band Six Ton Dog performed renditions of both English and Welsh songs.

Also performing were The Trigger Hounds, The Audio Drones, and soloists Amy Tasker, Mali Sigsworth and Graeme Hann.

My Eleventh Toe, a four-piece covers band, are a new addition to the event, and will bring it to a close later this evening.

Six Ton Dog’s set included versions of The Beatles’ I Saw Her Standing There, James’ Sit Down, Blur’s Parklife, Kasabian’s Fire, and Electric Light Orchestra’s Mr Blue Sky.
