Summer festival vibes were everywhere on the second day of Festivale's Indulge event, with the worry of floods banished from patrons minds.
Saturday's line up saw Janelle Stowe, Reeba Von Diamond, Pete Cornelius, and The Bad Dad Orchestra take the stage.
Reeba Von Diamond, bass player and singer in the band, said the group was honoured to play last year and to be asked back to play at Indulge.
"I was really excited to do it because I grew up in Launceston and Festivale has always been one of those beautiful events in the wonderful park, such a great family vibe," she said.
"It feels really great [to be back on stage], it feels really refreshed. I think there's a lot of gratitude, love, and a lot of energy coming from artists across the state to be out and performing.
"There's just a really joyful [vibe]."

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the band had experienced a huge loss in gigs, as did many others with no weddings or events on.
"It basically decimated the arts industry for Tasmania and there are a lot of people who make a living through art and from performing," the artist said.
"It's really lovely to see Festivale taking some really wonderful local acts and supporting those."
Festivale, and now by association Indulge, is not just known for its music but also for its food and wine too.
Indulge was created to be a one-off that offered something different to the entertainment scene.
Tasmanian Food Co employee Jason Beecroft said they participated in Festivale every year and were proud to be at Indulge.
"Much to our surprise and delight it's been a fantastic event," he said.
"Everybody is loving the social interaction and getting out.
"Unfortunately, it's not as engaging as what Festivale has been in the past [with no dancing] but they are really happy just to support local producers and manufacturers."
The Hive business manager Nicholas Bowman said it was their first time as a food van at the event and they were hoping to come back next year.
"It's excellent. It's been a great event so far," he said.
"Last night was a bit up in the air with the weather but people did come out and support."
