Jurassic Fields Music Festival returned to town - and it was well worth the wait.

The sun was shining and Asker Meadows was buzzing as the festival kicked off for a sixth year on Friday. 

On the main stage, The Kaizens opened the festival, stepping in after The Native had to pull out due to illness. The Kaizens set the festival mood with a mix of their own indie rock anthems some crowd-pleasing covers. Over at the Big Top, Smiley and the Underclass drew an impressive crowd with their unique blend of reggae and punk. 

The Tiny Top was the place to be for the hardcore ravers among us, with dance fans spilling out of the tent to catch The Tattoo'd Beat Messiah, Jay Rees and Sledgehead Bristol. 

And, in what festival organisers have dubbed 'one of the hottest festival appearances on the circuit in 2019', Coasts reformed to perform an exclusive set for Jurassic Fields, blowing the crowd away. 

There's still plenty to come, and the event boasts a great line-up of musical acts, both local and national.

CoCo have literally lived in their recording studio, taking the time to create a collection of songs that offer an honest and intriguing insight into their lives both together and personally. Starting with an exclusive premiere on Clash Music for their brand new single Monsters, within that description lies a tangible sense of triumph over adversity, and how a negative can be deftly orchestrated into a positive, in the story of Twyman’s tumultuous upbringing. Constantly touring, constantly writing and never quitting, CoCo and the Butterfields will be making music for a long, long time.
