Stage is set for music feast.
Workers have begun erecting the stages and fencing off the site for this Sunday's Middlesbrough Music Live event. The entire site will not be fully transformed until the early hours of Sunday to avoid as much disruption as possible.
Graham Ramsay, from Teesside promotions company Ten Feet Tall who co-organise the event with Middlesbrough Council, said: "After all the phone calls and all the running around and all the to-ing and fro-ing of pulling the festival together it's nice to see something physically happening.
"Once you begin to see the stages going up in the town centre I think that's when it really starts to get exciting because people know it's close to the big day."
Town centre traffic on Corporation Road and Albert Road will be diverted from around 5am on Sunday.
The festival site, which is again ring-fenced this year, will be open to the public from 11.30am.
Mr Ramsay added: " That's a great moment when we open the gates. Everything is falling nicely into place, all we can do now is hope for good weather!" * Go to gazettelive.co.uk for more information on the festival..
