Scores of festival goers, young and old, flocked to Escot Park, near Ottery St Mary - the home of the Levellers’ family music festival, organised by DMF Music.

Musical giants Manic Street Preachers, The Hives, Suzanne Vega and the Levellers were headline acts over the three-day festival, from August 17-19.

The festival boasts seven stages, on-site art, children’s area, comedy, theatre, family camping, licensed real ale bars and a wide choice of food and craft stalls.

Such is the popularity of Beautiful Days, festival tickets sell out quickly; it does not advertise, has no sponsorship or branding.

Accolades for Beautiful Days include the Grass Roots Festival Award at the 2015 UK Festival Awards and Best Medium Festival in the FestivalKidz.com 2015 Awards.

The festival was shortlisted for Best Medium Sized Festival at the 2016 UK Festival Awards, and named a finalist in the 2017 UK Festival Awards in three categories; with almost 50 per cent of the vote, Beautiful Days won Best Medium Festival at the 2017 Festival Kidz Awards.
