Bad weather did not dampen the spirits of revellers, who turned out in force for the Summerlands 2013 concert at the Lake Hawea Hotel last night.

Hotel spokeswoman Carolyn Hay said more than 1000 people had been expected to attend the event, held in and outside the hotel, for acts including Tiki Taane, P-Money, Dub FX and Flower Fairy.

Concerts had been a regular occurrence at the hotel, but it was the first in several years since a change of ownership, she said.

Bad weather had not disrupted the event or stopped concert-goers from camping on site.

''It's raining but everyone's having a good time. It's fantastic,'' she said.
