Newport Festival Big Splash 2014 Opening Night In Pictures

John Lilygreen
Tonight we visited the opening of Newport Festival's Big Splash event down at The Riverfront Theatre.
Several music acts opened the event on The Riverfront terrace, while a cabaret show took centre stage in the main theatre.

The music terrace events are underway
Singer/songwriter John Lilygreen was on stage first with a brilliant set that featured his own compositions mixed with choice covers from Michael Jackson, Luther Vandross and Labi Siffre.

Ampersand tune-up
Ampersand were up next mixing space suits with electronic sounds, they seemed to have a strong fanbase with them too!

GLC's Eggsy comperes
Goldie Lookin' Chain's Eggsy got the crowd excited as well as adding a touch of humour to proceedings!
Ampersand play
John Lilygreen and Ampersand were only the first of four acts of the first nights set, the remainder including Chris Ridgeway and Rogora Khart.
Art attack!
Jonathan and Thomas decided to get creative in The Riverfront foyer by colouring in some pictures!
