Organisers of the V Festival in Essex have confirmed the event will go ahead - despite safety concerns following Monday's terror attack at a music concert in Manchester.
Festival Republic, which runs the Hylands Park spectacular, said it would be consulting with police but insisted cancellation was not an option.
"We are certain we will not be defeated by such cowardice and are therefore confirming that Virgin V Festival will be going ahead as planned."
Tens of thousands of people are expected to descend on Chelmsford in August this year for the annual festival, which also takes place at a second site in Staffordshire.
