With a line up that featured Just Flare, Jade and Dane, Tim Gambles, Laphrodisiac and Chitty Bang Bang, the last day of Festivale's Indulge event was always going to be spectacular.
Musician Tim Gambles said it had been great to be back on stage and gigging again, with last year quiet due to the pandemic.
"I couldn't be any happier with how that gig went, it was awesome," he said.

Gambles played at both the Friday night and Sunday sessions, and entertained audiences on Friday with a sneak peak at his single, Here In The Dark, dropping February 12.
"It was nice to be able to have Friday be like a rock show with rain, thunder and all the works, and have Sunday nice and sunny, sitting on the lawn and doing something a bit more chilled out," he said.
Festivale chairman David Dunn said Indulge had been a very different event to Festivale, with the venue and layout change, and a smaller crowd.
"We have been rapt with the success of [Indulge], positive feedback all around," he said.
"For us, as a committee, it was important to put something on."
He said the committee had been lucky they were able to adapt their festival model to suit a different environment.
"If you've got a model that works and you can adapt it to go somewhere different, then your event can go ahead on a much smaller scale and be compliant [to COVID-19 safety restrictions]."
"This event wouldn't have worked as well at City Park, [but] the park is beautiful for Festivale."
The Festivale committee will have a meeting at some stage over the next few weeks to talk about what worked, what didn't and where to next.
"Any event that doesn't run for 12 months, it's very hard to start it up again. At least this way we have kept our date, we've had an event on, and people have had something to go to," Mr Dunn said.
"The public have been incredibly supportive of the event and we can't thank them enough."
Indulge sold out for both the Friday and Saturday evening sessions, with Saturday's day event close to selling out and Sunday's reaching 75 per cent capacity.
The event went ahead despite weather concerns.
