The Exeter Beats music festival entertained audiences throughout the day with bands playing live sets in beautiful weather before headline acts entertained crowds into the evening.

Festival co-founder Michael Caines MBE, said, “This year’s Festival and our new Exeter Beats music festival have been fantastic – bringing together regional producers and chefs and live music for a real celebration of the South West and all it has to offer. Visitors have sampled and purchased products, watched chef demonstrations, got involved with hands-on activities and enjoyed live music throughout the weekend. We would like to thank all visitors and sponsors who make the Exeter Food Festival possible each year.”
