MUSIC came to the park again at a free Huddersfield festival on Saturday.
Fans were out in force as bands played from lunchtime until the night at Ravensknowle Park, Moldgreen.
Organisers said today that the Timeless Festival had been a huge success.
Fans of all ages enjoyed the array of talent on show on two stages.
Headliners included The Selecter, a ska band whose hits in the late 1970s and early 1980s included Missing Words and On My Radio.
They split at the height of their popularity in 1981, but lead singer Pauline Black re-formed the band in 1991 and they played at Glastonbury this year.
They also tour Europe, the USA, Canada, Japan and throughout Europe with modern bands such as No Doubt and Basement Jaxx.
The event was organised by the Dalton, Rawthorpe and Moldgreen regeneration group Dram and Huddersfield record label Chocolate Fireguard.
Event manager Lyndon Peasley, of regeneration agency Huddersfield Pride, said: "People from all walks of life, young and old, side by side, enjoyed themselves.
"There was a real buzz and a fantastic atmosphere.
"Days like this help people feel proud of Huddersfield."
Fairground rides and stalls kept children happy while adults enjoyed a line-up of top entertainment.
Bands played on the main covered stage and the smaller one in the Cloth Hall clock tower.
On the main stage, big band group The Cat Pack opened the entertainment at noon.
Other acts included Huddersfield- based funky dance outfit Kava Kava and Root Jackson's UFBI, a blend of R 'n' B, funk and Caribbean beats.
Performers on the Clock Tower stage included Thelonius, Babyhead and Dalton's Practical Headz.
Mr Peasley said it had been great to see so many people in the park.
He said: "Our aims include bringing the community together and helping tackle social alienation in the young.
"The more we achieve this the more we can tackle problems such as anti- social behaviour and vandalism.
"This festival brings people together, instils a sense of pride in our area and involves our young people positively."
