Live music was a strong feature of the festival with several venues around the harbour and performers to suit all tastes. These included jazz bands, choirs, folk, rock, and traditional groups plus dancers. Both BBC Radio Cumbria and CFM had OB stages featuring live acts as well as pop records. Almost thirty acts kept a huge audience entertained throughout the weekend.
