Music fans in a mellow mood

Fans in the front row at River Sessions chose to wear caps and laid-back outfits, while others went all out, dressing as Fred and Wilma Flintstone and Jimi Hendrix.
Fans in the front row at River Sessions chose to wear caps and laid-back outfits, while others went all out, dressing as Fred and Wilma Flintstone and Jimi Hendrix.

MOST music fans were well-behaved at the River Sessions festival.

Over 18s who chose to drink at the event were confined to a drinking section at Ooralea Racecourse.

A police spokesman said overall, officers who patrolled the concert were happy with festival-goers.

"We were pleased with how people were behaved in the crowd," the spokesman said.

"There were few minor alcohol-related incidents.

"But it was good to see everyone had a great time."

Some fans also has fun preparing their outfits for the day.

While most took a laid-back fashion approach to the day, wearing shorts, t-shirts and caps, some chose to stand out in the crowd.

Fred Flintstone and his wife Wilma appeared at the event to add a bit of humour to the day while another fan dressed in a multi-coloured bodysuit, just to be different.

Characters like Peach, Mario and Luigi were spotted and there were even some legendary musicians - one young man dressed as the late Jimi Hendrix.

Fans who didn't want to carry a bag or wallet took bum bags.

Usually the bags wouldn't be seen as cool, but they were a very smart idea for anyone who wanted to keep their personal items safe.

For those who wanted an extra thrill at the festival the Sling Shot ride was the perfect choice.

The ride catapulted festival-goers up into the air giving them an aerial view of the performances.
