The sound of live music has filled the air in venues all along one of Wagga's main streets, as performers take stage from the banks of the Wollundry Lagoon down to the Thirsty Crow Brewery.
Various venues and more than 50 local musicians are taking part in this year's edition of Fitz Fest, including everything from traditional acoustic performers, eclectic punk rock banks and a Ukrainian opera singer.
The street festival, organised by Wagga City Council, kicked off from 10am and will continue all the way through to 11pm.
Griffith musician Dwayne Broome performed at the Wollundry Amphitheatre in the early afternoon and said it was "next level" to see Wagga fully embrace live music.
"I was very nervous but it was good to get back out on stage in front of a crowd and it's just a really good event," he said.
"Live music is always going to be more special because you can feel it more and you're really connecting with the artist."
