ORGANISERS are describing the 2012 Wall of Rock festival as the best yet, with thousands of music-lovers heading to Lossiemouth at the weekend.
More than 25 bands and acoustic musicians played across two stages on Friday and Saturday, with a third Lossiemouth High School stage also proving popular with the crowds.
"It was the best year yet, with a huge turnout on both evenings and almost 1,000 people at any one time," said stage manager Craig McKay.
"The sun shined all weekend and really brought the families out on the Saturday afternoon to enjoy the widest range of performers and entertainment."
Headlining on Friday night was ‘Peruvia’, a band made up of Lossiemouth High School sixth year pupils.
Forres band ‘Be Like Pablo’ brought the event to a close late on Saturday, with lead singer Ewen Watson describing the experience as a "joy".
"We had a great time playing at the Wall of Rock festival," he said.
"Our set seemed to go went down really well with the audience and it was a joy performing at an outdoor event with a great sound system, a hard-working stage crew, a large stage and an enthusiastic audience.
"It was a winning formula that brought the best out in our music and also seemed to benefit the other fantastic bands who played at the festival."
