THE first Montrose Music Festival has been an “astounding success” according to organisers, who are already turning their attention to next year’s event.

The Angus town was alive with the sound of music at the weekend, with more than 70 free gigs at a number of venues throughout the town.

The festival was given a top-class launch on Friday evening by headlining group The Average White Band, who played to a sell-out crowd in the town hall.
