The bad weather didn't stop thousands of people invading Belfast's Custom House Square for the first Belsonic concert of 2012.

On Wednesday night, international electronic music act Skrillex headlined the first of ten events, along with The Knife Party, Kill the Noise and Dillon Francis.

Sonny Moore - as the 24-year-old is also known - kept the crowd entertained, not only with his popular dubstep tunes, but with an impressive light and pyrotechnic show.

The rain that had poured all day on Wednesday even cleared to make way for some sunshine for the revellers.

The American music producer also took to a somewhat smaller venue when he DJed at the after party at a city centre nightclub.

Emeli Sandé, Foy Vance and Duke Special will perform at Belsonic on Thursday.

The music festival runs until Sunday 26 August, when David Guetta will headline the sold-out closing show.
