A music festival with a twist is taking over Cardiff today as it hosts a new one-day music event where revellers cover each other in multi-coloured paint powder.

The outdoor Colour Festival, the first of its kind in Wales, is based on popular house and dance-themed events which have run in Germany, Austria and Switzerland since 2012.
