A THREE-DAY music festival that celebrates the life of an avid rugby player who was killed in an accident at just 20 years old was held over the bank holiday weekend.

OllieFest in Ross-on-Wye celebrated the life of loved son and friend Ollie Floyd.

He died in 2015 after his agricultural vehicle rolled into a lake at Celtic Manor Resort hotel and golf course in Newport, Wales.

Family and friends are keeping his memory alive with the annual three-day music festival held at Ross rugby club.


Ollie played at Drybrook during his childhood, then joined the Ross club later.

Originally, the club decided to hold a rugby match in his memory and the festival developed from here.

The first one hosted 300 to 400 people, and the event then became bigger every year that followed.

Different local businesses have donated and helped with expenses over the years

Live music was played over three stages, and acts included UK Queen, the Commitments, UK Fleetwood Mac, Thomas Nicholas Band, the UK Rock Show, the Young Casuals, Young Elton, Runaway Killers, Born Gaga, Link N Park, DJ Hype, Vandal, DJ Sy, Nicky Blackmarket and lots more.


As well as the fantastic live music there was a fun fair, plenty of food and drink, entertainment for children, and an impressive fireworks display.

Money raised will got to local charities which are yet to be announced.
