Thousands of music fans are in Looe this weekend for Cornwall's second largest festival.

Ninety acts, including the Changing Room and the Polperro Fishermen's Choir as well as headliners Squeeze and Frank Turner will be playing.

It's the fourth year running for the festival, which is bigger than ever. The original idea was to help lengthen the tourist season.

The fancy dress theme this year is Celts and Cowboys and it's lovely to see everybody walking around town, having a great time, and really showing Looe at its best and helping our local economy, I think."
