Stuart said: "The first night of the festival and we met a family who had travelled up from Birmingham for the festival and were here all weekend.
"Two lads who had their picture taken had ridden their bikes from Barrow to enjoy a cuppa and some live music!
"Jimmy and Margaret had their picture taken at the Clock Tower. They had travelled to the festival from Oswaldtwistle.
"Day two of the festival was incredible! It was so busy at The Palatine that even the act struggled to get back in!
"Morecambe was truly rocking. It seems every festival venue in town was packed.
"We try so very hard to please everyone involved from venues, sponsors and most importantly the public that attend.
"We will thank everyone properly in the week ahead but for now, on behalf of the festival team, thank you so much. It’s been a blast!
"It’s time for a rest now and we’ll see you in 2022!"
