Despite torrential showers on Saturday, thousands of music lovers braved the storms to watch performances by Razorlight, The Feeling and The Hoosiers.
Crowds danced and sang as the rain lashed down on the Racecourse, which was reduced to a muddy mess by the time headliners Razorlight took to the stage.
But saturated fans refused to let the rain dampen their spirits, dancing and singing in their wellies and ponchos well into the night, as the band finished their set with their chart-topping hit America .
Chronicle reporter Rachel Flint, who watched the band with her boyfriend Andy Archer, and friends Laura Griffiths and Becca Loyley, said: “The atmosphere was incredible.
“It felt like the rain wasn’t going to stop, I was dripping wet, but everyone was dancing and singing along. You just had to enjoy yourself – it was infectious.”
Chester Rocks saw thousands of people flock to Chester Racecourse for the three day festival, which has been running for four years in the city.
