MORE than 12,500 people converged on the little town of Meredith for the regions biggest music festival over the weekend.

Expanding the town’s population by almost 11,800 people, the sold out crowds at this year’s Meredith Music Festival took over the town’s Supernatural Amphitheatre for what many dubbed the ‘best yet’.

Celebrating its 25th year, many traveled from across the country for the "aunty Meredith" experience which saw the likes of Big Daddy Kane taking to the stage over the three days.

Tickets for the popular festival were sold out in August with new attractions, including the laser sky show, adding to this year’s experience.

Dry paddocks and, up and down weather were not enough to deter festival-goers who continued dancing through Saturday night.

Leading Senior Constable of Meredith Police, Greg Kitchen said crowds were well behaved with only one drug related arrest.

“Crowds were better than last year”, he said.

The festival came to an end on Sunday afternoon.
