Saturday at Standon Lordship saw the themed fancy dress parade, as well as main stage performances from the likes of Laura Mvula and headliners Clean Bandit.

Rain during the day failed to dampen the spirits of revellers, who enjoyed themselves despite the mud, as the likes of Fickle Friends, Cabbage, Nothing But Thieves, !!! (Chk Chk Chk) and Idles took to the stages dotted around the Hertfordshire site.

Rather Be and Rockabye chart-toppers Clean Bandit returned to the festival as the Saturday night headliners, with cellist Grace Chatto getting the crowd going.

There were also DJ sets from the likes of Lindstrom and Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard.
