The highly anticipated Maverick Festival was held at Easton Farm Park between Friday and Sunday under the scorching sunshine.

Attendees were able to enjoy films, workshops and performances from more than 50 different artists across six stages, indoors and out.

The event is billed as the UK’s first and finest Americana music festival.

A spokeswoman for the festival said: “This year’s Maverick Festival was one of our best yet. It was a weekend full to the brim with musical talent, alongside Hawaiian weather to match our Hawaiian theme this year.
