HUNDREDS attended an annual music festival in Caerleon on Saturday, which was headlined by the UK’s number one Stereophonics tribute band.

The Newport High School Old Boys (NHSOB) Summer Festival was held for the fourth time at the rugby club’s ground on Yew Tree Lane.

Stereophonics tribute band Stereosonics, from Leicestershire, got the crowd on their feet from 8.30pm with hits such as Dakota, Maybe Tomorrow, Have a Nice Day, and Handbags and Gladrags.

The festival’s signature main stage, which has been expanded year on year, also played host to 4th Street, Big Mac’s Wholly Soul Band, Innovence, Spark the Sail and 7th Circle throughout the day.

With the festival gates having swung open at 2pm, punters made the most of the good weather and the various ride attractions on the day.

On the more intimate Loft Stage, the likes of Canute, Tobias Robertson, Morgan Rawbone and Slim Pigeon kept the vast crowds entertained.

The NHSOB club was first founded in time for the 1923/24 season and it has played at its current ground on Yew Tree Lane since 1949.

Membership was first opened to people who were not Old Boys of Newport High School in the mid-1960s and by the early 1970s the club had four senior teams.
