    Herefordshire's Big Chill Festival gets underway today and almost 40,000 people will be there until Monday.

    And while the musical acts might not be up everyone's streets - the scale of the event and the impact on the local area shouldn't be underestimated.

    So whether it's Robert Plant you're interested in, or Kanye West, it's all going on at Eastnor Castle.

    Interviews

    Business leaders say the Big Chill music festival generates up to a quarter of a million pounds for the local economy.

    That's about £6 for every visitor to the event at Eastnor Castle.

    We'll hear from Gary Woodman, from the Herefordshire & Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce, who says that's a big boost - and Hannah Pierce, who runs the Cameron & Swan café in Ledbury, who agrees.

    Many of those will be coming from outside the county and Visit Herefordshire is hoping to convince people to return after the festival has finished.

    Sir Ben Gill, the chairman of Visit Herefordshire, says it's an important opportunity for the local economy.
