Organizers of the first annual Keloha Festival couldn't be happier.

The inaugural festival went off without a hitch with no major incidents that required police attention, perfect weather and an atmosphere that was equally enjoyed by performers and fans.

Organizer with Wet Ape Productions, Scott Emslie says they hit it out of the park.

"All the artists that came loved it. My staff did a really great job. Talking with every guest that I pretty much spoke with, they just had a blast. The whole vibe of the festival was very positive. I see a lot of potential to grow this in the future."

Emslie says 12,000 people attended the festival over the weekend.
