Organisers of a Shropshire music festival have confirmed it will return in 2012.

OsFest, now in its second year, attracted some 4,500 people to the Oswestry Showground over the bank holiday weekend.

Organiser Carly Jackson said this year's success had been due to the mix of big names alongside local talent.

Artists including Tinchy Stryder, Jaguar Skills and The Feeling shared the spotlight with local bands.

Speaking before their performance on Sunday Philie Jones, bass player with Oswestry band The Kayas said: "We're playing the main stage, which is great for us, new fans will hopefully see us."

The festival made the headlines as Tinchy Stryder's Saturday set had to be moved forward to allow him to perform at the Champion's League final at Wembley stadium in the evening.

Ms Jackson said the organisers would look at all the feedback before planning next year's event.
