CROWDS of people flocked to Weston at the weekend to attend world-touring festival Corona Sunsets.

The event took place on the beach and featured two stages filled with performances.

Chart-toppers Clean Bandit headlined the Griffin Stage following performances from Groove Armada, Radio 1 DJ Rob Da Bank and Eton Messy, who run a successful YouTube channel showcasing house, lounge and electronic music.

Eton Messy is made up of Adam Englefield, Ed Byass and Charlie Wedd, who met at university in Bristol.

The trio have since been propelled into success and the Mercury caught up with Charlie at the event on Saturday.

He said: “I came down (to Weston) once or twice when I was in Bristol. It’s really nice when the sun is out.

“Corona have done an amazing job, as they always do.

“We did the festival in Ibiza last year, which was cool, but this one seems to be put together a lot better.

“It’s great to see where it has come in a year.”

He also told the Mercury exclusively about an exciting new project the group have been working on, and said: “We are launching a compilation which is going to come out at the end of August.

“It’s featuring lots of people we have supported on our channel and whose songs we play in our DJ sets and events.

“It’s been a four-month project. It 
was a lot more work than we thought it would be, so it’s going to be nice to see it out.”

However there were some minor disruptions caused by the event, as police made four arrests and removed four more people from the town centre.
