Taking advantage of a sunny evening in Tahunanui, the Summer Beach Festival put on a show featuring some of the region's best young artists.

The event, hosted by youth service The Truck, entertained the crowd with bands, barbecues and games at Tahuna Beach.

The lineup featured Rockquest entrants Third Wheel, Livvy & Anna and Fire Without Permit, as well as 2013 Tasman's Got Talent winner Chase Tangohua.

The headline act was Nelson-Malborough band Little Oceans, fresh from their biggest gig yet at Rhythm and Vines.

The trio previously known as Recommended By Your Mom, closed out the evening which finished slightly earlier than expected.

Audience member Jim Dion enjoyed the gig.

"It's a great event and a lovely atmosphere, everyone's well behaved but we need to get more people to enjoy it," he said.

This is the third youth event put on by The Truck, part of eight events that are held each year, with the next one being a pool party at Nayland Pool.
