Some 135,000 ticket holders have been making their way on to the site since gates opened on Wednesday morning.

Yesterday hundreds of fans payed homage to Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger, taking part in a Jumping Jack Flashmob, which saw crowds of people mimic Sir Mick Jagger's trademark dance moves.

The band will perform their headline set on Saturday night, with folk-rock band Mumford and Sons taking to the stage on Sunday.
