Visitors to Kendal Calling festival could almost double in number in the coming years.
Last year, around 16,000 people attended the festival, making it the biggest so far.
This year, it seems to set to grow again as it has won backing from Eden Council to increase its capacity from 20,000 to almost 35,000 over the next three years.
Up and coming Cumbrian band Colt 45 played their first Kendal Calling Festival together over the weekend.
The band, who are from Carlisle and Workington, formed when they met at Carlisle night club The Brickyard.
The three, Neil Harper, Adam Lewis and Gareth Jenkins, have just released their new album.
They appeared at the Woodlands Stage on Sunday afternoon and shortly afterwards they spoke back stage to our reporter Matthew Taylor.

Fiona Marley Paterson reports.
Around 17,000 festival-goers attended the ninth Kendal Calling, which took place near Penrith over the weekend.
Police say that 36 arrests were made for drugs offences, but overall there were fewer arrests this year.
Festival organisers are now working on making next year even better, as it will be the tenth anniversary.
Heavy rain for most of the weekend made the ground wet and muddy.
"We bring in some woodchip that kind of thing to make it a bit easier on the ground and under people's feet but to be honest there's not too much you can do about mud. It'll dry out when it dries out.
"We just keep an eye and make sure that the walkways are clear and that people are getting on happily."
