With the likes of Jay Z, Pink and Ellie Goulding on the line-up this year, expectations for V Festival have been sky-high.
And revellers certainly appeared to be enjoying themselves in the sunshine as they put on their crop tops, hot pants and glitter for the second day of the popular music event in Staffordshire and Chelmsford.
More than 70,000 fans have flocked to the festival with wellies at the ready, although the rain has held off in the main so far.
However, that’s all expected to change as rain is forecast to hit both festival sites later tonight as headliners Jay Z and Pink to the stage.

Festival-goers at the Hylands Park site were treated to a headline performance from Pink last night, while Jay Z headlined Weston Park – with the pair swapping stages on the second day of the festival.
But the event has not gone without controversy so far, with Pink fans said to have been left fuming after MTV cut the coverage of her set down to just one song.
Other artists on the line-up this year include Mercury-nominated grime artist Stormzy, who tweeted his excitement ahead of the festival on Saturday.
He posted V FESTIVAL WHAT THE F*** ARE WE SAYING’ before adding that he had ‘been waiting for this one’.

The rapper later poked fun at his own giddiness with Ellie Goulding, who he said was acting ‘ever so calmly’ on her arrival at the festival.
He wrote: ‘Ellie Goulding just stepped off the private jet ever so calmly with like 100 people and we here running around the runway like kids gassed.’
Ellie, who had flown to the UK from Krakow, Poland, where she had performed on Friday, responded to his initial V Festival tweet by sharing just a crying laughing emoji and a love heart symbol.
Stormzy wrote back to her, using the crying laughing emoji: ‘You’re such a g see you soon.’
