THERFIELD Heath was rocking to the sound of Royston's first youth music festival, Event Horizon, at the weekend.
A line up of top local bands, headed by Spiked and the October Game, helped make the inaugural Event Horizon, which was organised by the Royston Youth Council, an eventful day.
Alan Fleck, North Herts District Council Community Development Officer, said the festival was a "great success".
"We didn't have quite as many people down there as we would have hoped, but I think that was due to holidays and the weather," he said.

"All the bands are locally-based, and the line up ranged from young up-and-coming acts to more established performers."
A barbecue and juice bar, organised by the Heath Sports Centre, did a roaring trade, while visitors were also able to try their hand at mountaineering by ascending a climbing wall.
Mr Fleck paid tribute to the youth councillors who organised the event.
He said: "They had some assistance, but did the majority of planning themselves, and secured funding from the Youth Opportunity Fund.
"We'd like to do another festival next year, but it will depend on what kind of funding is available.
