Witney Music Festival was forced online by the pandemic this summer with the event broadcast on YouTube and other streaming services.

It's the biggest music event in the town's calendar and at the weekend festival goers were invited to join in on YouTube, Windrush Radio, and other streaming services.

There were specially-performed music tracks and interviews to re-connect Witney people to the local music scene following the latest lockdown.

Derek West, one of the organisers said earlier: "It’s still a very difficult decision to organise a live event with so much uncertainty."

The music festival was cancelled in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

In pre-Covid times the Leys recreation ground has been transformed into a field of fun, and music for the festival.

In 2019 it was estimated the event attracted a record-breaking crowd of more than 15,000 people.

Popular acts included electronic group N-Trance and Prodigy tribute band Jilted Generation.

The three organisations running the festival are Windrush Radio, charity Guideposts Trust and Witney Music Festival.

Windrush Radio works with many local organisations from Witney Pride to the Witney Beer Festival, and over the past year has brought people together with its Covid round-up.
