Organisers have already warned concert-goers not to bring a bag unless it is completely necessary, and it must be no bigger than an A4 size. They also warned people to beware of bogus ticket sellers, and to not buy from any unofficial sites as these tickets will be accepted.

Thankfully, the weather finally seems to be looking up, with sunshine and temperatures of up to 19C expected over the Bank Holiday. You could say, it's shaping up to be a perfect weekend.
