Thousands of people descended on Scone Palace for the biggest event ever to be held at the venue.
The sold-out BBC Biggest Weekend attracted 20,000 music fans from all over Scotland with performers including Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds and Simple Minds.
Scorching weather in Perth is set to continue for the Radio Two event on Saturday, with temperatures reaching 22°C.
The crowds basked in the heat, stretched out in the sun as they listened to the first acts of the day, Squeeze, Julie Fowlis and The Beat.

Radio Two presenters Sara Cox and Ken Bruce are hosting at the Perthshire event, along with Edith Bowman and Claudia Winkleman.
Arriving at Scone, Sara said: “It’s lovely to come back to Scotland.
“I’ve found with other events like T in the Park that the Scottish crowds are great fun.
It’s exciting coming to this because it feels like the start of summer, it’s a great vibe.”

Biggest Weekend kicked off on Friday with Radio Three’s classical and jazz music showcase, with acts including Nigel Kennedy, Evelyn Glennie, Jamie Cullum and the Scottish Symphony Orchestra.
Organisers hailed a successful event, topped off by the fantastic weather.
The Scone gathering is one of four events being held by the BBC across the UK this weekend, with others happening in Belfast, Swansea and Coventry.
It is the biggest music festival ever organised by the broadcaster, in an expansion of the annual two-day Big Weekend, held in one location each year.
The BBC will be broadcasting live on TV and radio, with coverage also available on demand.
Concerns had been raised about Perth and Kinross Council’s “excessive” traffic management plan ahead of the festival, which included road closures in the city centre and around the venue.
Festival-goers are being urged to use shuttle buses, although tickets were not available to book in advance in the week leading up to the event.
Taxi drivers slammed the arrangements, saying they are only allowed to pick up and drop off one mile away from Scone Palace while some city business owners closed for the duration of the event, due to road closures around their premises.
