Forty thousand people are attending Bestival on the Isle of Wight this weekend.
Bestival is located on The Robin Country park site, and festival-goers are being encouraged to keep the site as clean as possible by recycling what they can.
The festival opened on Thursday 8th September and there will be music from The Cure, Fatboy Slim and Bastille over the weekend.
Fans will have to leave the site by 2pm on Monday 12th September when the clean-up will begin.
It's the last festival of the summer and the most colourful. Forty thousand people have arrived on the isle of Wight for 'Bestival'.
Some of them chose a slightly unusual way to arrive - swimming across the Solent. Mary Stanley reports.
A teenager has been charged by police investigating the alleged scamming of festival-goers looking to buy tickets to last summer's Bestival.
People complained about being left ticketless after paying to go to the festival on the Isle of Wight to see acts including Duran Duran and Missy Elliott.
More than 900 people joined a Facebook page titled "Stresstival", with many posters claiming to have been left out of pocket and with no ticket.
New wave rockers The Cure and dance act Major Lazer have been announced as headliners for Bestival.
As well as the Boys Don't Cry singers, other acts added to the line-up for the last major festival of the summer, held in September on the Isle of Wight, include Hot Chip, Animal Collective, Bastille, The Human League, Wolf Alice and Kitty, Daisy and Lewis.
And the event, famous for its fancy dress parade, has announced the future as its theme.
"Prepare yourselves for a Bestival unlike any other with futuristic new stages, and as ever it's a broad church of music from every decade and every genre. Saturday night headliners and one of my favourite bands ever, The Cure, played Bestival five years ago and almost had to be dragged off stage after a three-hour mammoth greatest hits set.
"Robert Smith popped down last year and we shook hands on it all happening again - bring it on."
The Isle of Wight is well-known for its festivals, but now it's been officially recognised at a national awards ceremony.
Bestival has been named as best major festival at this year's UK Festival awards.
The Isle of Wight Festival has picked up Best Headliner and Best Family Festival accolades.
"Oh crikey, Bestival HQ is in a psychedelic hangover fug today as news sinks in of our win last night at the Festival Awards. To win Best Major Festival in 2015 is testament to our incredibly faithful Bestivalites who come back year in year out, but also the likes of Missy, the Chems and Duran Duran for lighting up the skies, and mostly our tirelessly devoted staff and crew who make it all come together. This awards for all you guys…my mantelpiece is full already!"
Police are urging music fans, who are victims of ticket fraud at Bestival, to contact them as soon as possible.
Officers were alerted before Bestival started on 10 September. A number of people from Brighton reported that they paid for tickets, but had not received them.
The investigation is continuing and, so far, police have confirmed there are more than 250 victims.
Police have set up a web page with an online form.
