Headliners kings of Leon were centre stage at V festival as tens of thousands of music fans visited Chelmsford's Hylands Park.
Huge crowds packed out the venue, spilt in to two main stages and many other tents. On Saturday the early arrivals were treated to a exciting set by Feeder, an alternative rock band whose biggest hits came in the late nineties.
Another of the early performers were The Coral, singing hits In The Morning and Dreaming of you which received great cheers from there crowd.
The Magic Numbers, Divine Comedy, and Paloma Faith were among the day time acts on the 4 music stage, all in which had a great crowd and many of there lyrics were sung back at them which produced a hair raisin atmosphere.
It came to the late afternoon and the crowd was showing full appreciation the set by the Editors, however it was not until Scouting for Girls and Paul Weller were competing for listeners at that point the festival showed it's split personality.
On the 4 music stage, the piano pop group had fans who new all the words to there hits suck as She's So Lovely and also Elvis Ain't Dead.
Where as a more chilled performance by Paul Weller was being enjoyed by a relaxed and older audience on the other stage.
The evening came and it was time for every ones favourites Stereophonics and newcomers Florence and the Machine hit the stage ready to warm up the crowd for the headliners; Kings of Leon and David Guetta.
During Kings of Leons act they played there most known songs such as Sex on Fire and Use Somebody, however this did not stop them from keeping everyone entertained for a full 90 minutes. Many people would say singing Sex on Fire with the band was there favourite part of the evening as it created an amazing atmosphere.
