“The atmosphere has been incredible,” said Steve Causer of Frequency magazine, who organised the event alongside inSwindon.
“The idea began to help develop new audiences for live music in Swindon – so what better way to show the public what goes on in the town than to take the music to them.”
Bands that performed on Saturday included The Beatbullyz, Durera, Talk In Code and Billy Jon.
“It’s the first time we’ve played a gig in the day, but it’s gone really well," commented lead singer Bully (Andy Bullimore) from The Beatbullyz.
“We’ve been discussing ways to develop the local music scene in Swindon – and live music in the centre fits in with what inSwindon is doing to make the town a more vibrant place to visit,” said Suzie Johnson, marketing assistant for inSwindon.
The next gig is on Saturday 5 April.
