The sixth Weekend Beach festival kicked off on Wednesday, with thousands of people descending on Torre del Mar.

A large queue of festival-goers ('Weekers'), impatient to get their wristbands and start the party, had already formed by Wednesday morning.

Less well-known Spanish bands performed on Wednesday night, as has been customary since the first event in 2014.

Thursday's big names were Reggaeton artist, Ozuna, as well as DJ Chris Liebling and dance music group, Dubfire.

The Original Wailers will be performing tonight and the biggest name of the festival, The Black Eyed Peas, will be headlining on Saturday.

Over 140,000 people are expected to attend the festival over its four-day period.
