Latitude may have made all the headlines, but it was the 'Ashtude' Festival running at the same time which drew the crowds in from Harleston.
With a name influenced by the popular Southwold event, Ashtude - held at Archbishop Sancroft High School (ASHS) - included music, a hog roast, bungee run and a gladiator duel, as well as the more traditional stalls.
Students from the secondary school also showed off their singing and dancing talents, while there was also a chance to 'dunk the teacher'.
Rob Connelly, deputy headteacher at ASHS, said up to 1,000 people could have attended Saturday's event, which ran from 4pm to 7pm.
'We have pitched it not as a rival to Latitude but the name is borne from that,' he said.
