Music legends were met with rapturous crowds at Huddersfield's very own Wannasee music festival.

Over 2,000 people danced and sung their hearts out all day to their favourite tunes, brought to life by tribute acts from around the UK.

There were no shortage of inventive moves being pulled by young, old and even an Austin Powers lookalike to hits by Michael Jackson, Queen, Bon Jovi, ABBA, Bruno Mars and The Beatles.

The sun broke through early grey clouds and drizzle, adding to the high energy summer festival spirit.

"It's been too long since we had an event like this in Greenhead Park", said Erin Chappell, who had come along with friends and family including her son Jack.

"The last thing we went to was Mumford and Sons which was ages ago, so I hope this encourages more events to happen."

Music lovers travelled from around the region to watch the acts, giving the thumbs up to the acts' resemblance to the real music stars.

Andrew Mawson, who came over from Manchester, said: "It's really good- the bands have all been really convincing.

"I'm a big Michael Jackson fan and can't wait for him to headline."

Children ran around happily, enjoying the fair ground rides and hula hooping, while even dogs seemed to be enjoying the show.

Paul Watson, one of the Wannasee Festival organisers, was so happy with the event's success, he wants to bring the event back to the town.

"It's a great location in a great town. The crowd beats Bishop Auckland hands down. The acts are really top quality.
"If Huddersfield will have us back, we'll come."
