The Courtyard Stage show-cased Nottingham singers Indiana, Saint Raymond, Rob Green, Nina Smith and Natalie Duncan, and Derby duo Miss 600 who all held their own, charming the section of the crowd who wanted a more laid-back approach to the day.
The Lightning Seeds and Levellers were two of the most popular acts on the Jagermeister Stage. They encouraged banter about the sound levels whilst their ever popular classic songs got the audience singing along.
Young Nottingham artist Jake Bugg was this year promoted to the Main Stage on which to perform. Early arriving listeners got to see just why Noel Gallagher and Zane Lowe are promoting the lad so much.
The rest of the day on the Main Stage was occupied by tribute band Bjorn Again, Hard-Fi, Katy B and Razorlight before the grime superstar a lot of the young crowd had come to see took to the stage at 9pm. Dizzee Rascal performed all his hits (complete with colourful language) accompanied by a host of pyrotechnics, lasers and dry ice effects. Ending with ‘Bonkers’, the keen Dizzee fans, who’d hugged the front of the main stage for most of the day, didn't leave disappointed.
