THE stars have aligned for the inaugural K-Fest event in Rhyl.

Thousands of people packed into the town’s Events Arena for three consecutive days to catch the event, which was blessed with good weather and positive feedback from its guests.

Joining the Rhyl revellers for the event was a host of acts including headliners Judge Jules, Weiss, and Ian Broudie and the Lightning Seeds, as well as children’s favourite Peppa Pig.

“The weather was excellent too, somebody was definitely looking over us and it was written in the stars. Except for a tiny bit of drizzle on the Saturday, the rain fortunately held off just until the music finished on the last day.”

Although each day of the festival featured tailored line-ups for different crowds, K-Fest enjoyed a family day atmosphere which as enjoyed by Mr Ghani’s twin sons Azeem and Akeem, aged 9.

Mr Ghani added; “The boys really loved the Spice Girls and Little Mix tributes on the Friday, but I think they enjoyed the went as a whole and are proud of their dad.

“We didn’t have any trouble all weekend, in fact all of the promoters who go to events like this week in week out even said how good the crowd was. It was like the old days in the Brunel’s club in the town, and has definitely put Rhyl back on the map.

“Judge Jules himself wanted to keep playing, it was shame we had to finish at 10pm.

“This is exactly what were going for, we wanted to bring that atmosphere back to Rhyl and I think it’s done a lot for the town’s reputation.”

“I can’t believe it’s all over - I still feel like I’m in a dream.”

Despite the fact that the dust hasn’t settled on the first event, Mr Ghani and fellow organiser John Marchbank are already planning the sequel next year.

Mr Ghani, for whom K-Fest is his first major event, said: “A lot of people were saying that we should do this every bank holiday in Rhyl, so K-Fest is definitely here to stay.

“We’ve learned a lot of lessons and the festival is going to be back even bigger and better next year.”
