This year’s Longton Live was so popular, organisers sold out of the 3,000 wristbands and had to sell paper replacements.
“There was a huge response”, said Nigel Stewart, the man responsible for setting up the event, which saw 70 acts performing in 16 venues on Friday and Saturday night.
He added: “When it feels like society has been fractured and politicians are acting like children, it was so overwhelming to see such an outpouring from a community.
“There was no trouble and a great sense of togetherness.
“I’ve had some lovely feedback from one person saying what an honour it was to play.”
Nigel, who is also the founder of Penwortham Live, Leyland Live and Chorley Live, through his Creative Network, paid tribute to a team of volunteers who made the event possible.
He said: “There were 50 volunteers who gave up six to 12 hours of their weekend to serve the community. It’s such a contract to everything else going on.”
