Frequency festival opening attracts crowds at Lincoln's Cornhill
Crowds braced the autumn weather and gathered for the opening of Frequency Festival 2013 tonight, at the Cornhill in Lincoln.
The opening night saw huge animations projected onto three buildings surrounding the square from 6pm, while progressive music matched the displays.
More than 100 people stood and stared, or tried out interactive art.
Frequency festival organisers say the last event two years ago saw more than 32,000 people attend.

Uzma Johal, festival director, hopes this year will see even more people.
“What we believed having worked with festivals in Europe and in the UK was that Lincoln was a beautiful canvas to run a festival,” she said.
“But actually turn it into something that maybe in time people would say, ‘Frequency is coming, I need to book my ticket or my train or my hotel and get to Lincoln for October’.
“We are already talking about a bigger and better 2015, we already know we will be back here in October half term.”
Artists from as far away as Los Angeles and Spain are taking part in the festival, along with talent from around Lincolnshire.
Matthew Bell, 25 and from Horncastle, tried on a set of goggles and earphones that created a virtual reality experience – making the user carry out odd steps and actions.
“I don’t know how you can explain it. It’s different.
“You put the goggles on and get a different perspective. You have our world and another world when you put the goggles on.”
The festival runs from October 18-26 with a mixture of free and ticketed events running each day.
