PUBLISHED: 14:30 11 February 2020
Ipswich Music Day has long now been a staple in the calendar with this year bringing the 30th festival for Suffolk musicians to step on the stage at Christchurch Park.
In this gallery we go back to 2002 as we see the Music Day in its 12th year with the park packed out with music lovers and families supporting the local talent.
The annual free festival is the biggest of its kind in the UK with hundreds applying to try and make the line-up.

The day also saw Ed Sheeran perform before he was famous in 2009 and 2010, with a stage now named in his honour.
Organisers at Ipswich Borough Council are encouraging people to apply to perform at this year's event with entries open until 10am on Monday, March 23.
