Glam rock band Sweet rocked Central Park when they headlined Dagenham’s Roundhouse Festival.
The 1970s legends performed hits Ballroom Blitz and Love is like Oxygen to fans on Bank Holiday Monday.
They were preceded by tribute acts for Madness, Queen and Bon Jovi, along with the final of the Roundhouse Unsigned competition.
The contest was looking for the best unsigned acts in the borough, with four making it through to the last stage.
After performing to thousands, Josh Gleaves was selected as the winner, receiving a trophy, £500 and the opportunity to perform at the Roundhouse pub.
Councillor Saima Ashraf said: “Roundhouse is always one of our big attractions and this was another memorable event.
“Our community came together once again and made their own carnival atmosphere in Dagenham as they enjoyed great music and sang their hearts out.
“The night was rounded off in style with our headline act Sweet producing a great show.”
