Three of the biggest names in music descended on the Brighton Festival last night.

Yoko Ono, The Scissor Sisters and The Happy Mondays took to the stage in an unforgettable night attended by hundreds of music fans.

But dozens of teenage fans were left devastated after queueing up to see their idols only to be turned away.

The Happy Mondays performed at Horatio's Bar at the end of the Palace Pier - after handing out free fish and chips to the hungry fans who had packed into the venue.

Yoko Ono, the wife of murdered Beatle John Lennon, and camp rockers The Scissor Sisters joined this year's breakthrough act The Gossip at the festival's distinctive Udderbelly venue for the recording of Channel 4's Transmission show, which is due to be broadcast tonight.

Ono gave an interview to presenters Lauren Laverne and Steve Jones while The Scissor Sisters and The Gossip played to fans who had packed out the purple cow.

Singers Ana Matronic, from The Scissor Sisters, and Beth Ditto, from The Gossip, paid tribute to Ono as she spoke of her love of Brighton.

Ono described Brighton as a "beautiful, beautiful town".

She said: "I came here a long time ago with John and I've always had a romantic image of the place."

Hundreds of people had applied for tickets to see the groups at the Udderbelly.

Fans were invited to register for tickets online but many were left disappointed after organisers said the venue was full.

One upset reveller told The Argus: "I had a ticket and all these other girls had tickets as well.

"Everyone was told to get there at 6.30pm, all dressed up for it, only to be let down."
