More than 107,000 people took part in the festival programme across South Tyneside - with around 64,000 of these heading to the concerts, which are held every Sunday throughout July.

The summer concerts boast names from across the music world, as well as giving local performers a chance to shine.

We may not have even had Christmas yet, but we're already looking to next summer - and who you want to see take to the stage.

The Vamps were on the line-up for this year's free concerts.

This year's acts included Heather Small, Atomic Kitten, Pixie Lott, The Vamps, X Factor contestant Sam Lavery and ex-JLS member Aston Merrygold.
