This mainstream-friendly dual-venue festival continues to draw a truly staggering array of the most popular names in rock and pop, thanks to a budget that appears to be bottomless. It's a shame about the overcrowding, the extortionate price of everything and an atmosphere that feels more like a gaggle of stag and hen dos than an all-inclusive party in a field, but you can always take solace in the luxury 'V Style' campsite or comedy stage, both of which were only recently introduced.
