The sixth Pigstock heralded the start of the summer festival season on Saturday and Sunday (May 18-19) with a packed day of music, entertainment for children and grown-ups and sunshine.

Jo Whiley rounded off a day of music with her 90s anthems set, which was the only South West date on her sell out national tour.

To fans' delight, the Radio 2 DJ came from backstage to meet the crowds and pose for selfies.

Other performers included Dr and the Medics, Electric Swing Circus, Laid Blak, Shohawk Duo and CBeebies presenter, Andy Day.

Away from the main stage, Pigstock lived up to its reputation as the region's friendliest family festival with a site crammed with free kids activities.

Festival organiser, Matt Samuel, said: "It's been a fantastic Pigstock and we'd love to thank all those Pigstockers - old and new - who made it such a great occasion."

"It was our biggest yet and such a great vibe all day - from the kids going mad for Andy Day to the parents going mad for Jo Whiley's set of sing along classics."
