Organised by Ipswich Borough Council, Summertime Ipswich was smaller than the usual Maritime Festival with rides and stalls at the far end of the Waterfront close to the Cult Bar and Aurora. 

On Saturday night festivalgoers along the Waterfront were able to enjoy a special firework display and there was a programme of live music from the BBC Introducing Stage across both days.
