The popular two-day event will see hip-hop star 50 Cent and dance music stars Chase and Status take to the stage.

Work has been going on all week to build the huge stage, set up two big music tents and bring in a range of fairground rides.

The festival starts at midday on Saturday and will finish late on Sunday evening.

More than 15,000 music fans are expected to fill the King George V playing fields throughout the weekend.

Organiser Luke Betts earlier told The News that the event would go ahead as planned despite Monday night’s terror attack in Manchester.

But he warned that festival-goers should expect long queues on arrival as all bags will be thoroughly searched.
