(JB) The Luxembourgish town of Pétange embraced the Rockabilly genre on Saturday as visitors dressed up, collectors showed off cars and live music filled the town centre.

Rockabilly is a type of popular music, originating in the southeastern US in the 1950s, combining elements of rock and roll and country music.

Pétange's Rockabilly festival formed part of its Luxembourg-American friendship festival, paying tribute to the American forces who helped to liberate the town during WWII.
