It's always tough to squeeze in everybody we want to see, but here are the ten acts who we'll be making an extra effort to watch...
There's so many reasons why we can't wait to see Queen B hit the stage, but since she debuted her drastic new pixie cut last week, we're eager to see what kind of hair style the sassy songstress will have on Saturday. We're slightly hoping that she goes back to her long curls though. We can't imagine a performance without some dramatic hair flicks! (NN)
Ever since he burst onto our screens on X Factor we've had a major soft spot for Mr Murs. And not only because he's pretty easy on the eyes! Hits like 'Troublemaker' and 'My Heart Skips A Beat' have made him a chart force to be reckoned with and even landed him a supporting slot on Robbie Williams' stadium tour. While we're more than satisfied with Olly solo, fingers crossed he might convince Rob to join him on stage! (LM)
They'll be without pregnant Frankie Sandford this weekend (who is not performing again until after her baby's birth) but we'll get the return of Rochelle Humes following her maternity leave. We'll definitely be dancing along to hits like 'All Fired Up', 'Higher', 'Up' and their number one smash 'What About Us'. And hoping their glammed up, sure-to-be fab outfits don't make us feel too bad about our muddy, day-old clothes and unwashed hair. (LM)
Two words. Danny O'Donoghue. Okay. Four words. Danny O'Donoghue. A-mazing songs. Tracks like 'Hall Of Fame' were written to be performed at festivals with thousands singing along. Add in 'Breakeven', 'The Man Who Can't Be Moved', 'Nothing'… have they ever released a so-so song?! We'll also be secretly hoping we bump into Danny while we're queuing for chips between acts… (LM)
Calvin's given us hit after hit, all of which we cannot wait to hear this weekend – especially 'We Found Love'. Maybe he could fly Rihanna out to join him too? But if RiRi is a bit of stretch, perhaps the superstar DJ will persuade girlfriend Rita Ora to come out on stage with him, since she will be there anyway. (NN)
Hackney quartet Rudimental have been dominating our iPods this year and after releasing a chart-topping album, we're amped up to see all of their infectious singles live, such as 'Waiting All Night'. Oh and vocalist John Newman – who features on 'Feel The Love' – is also going to be making in appearance at the festival too. Perfect! (NN)
Conor Maynard is a bit of a guilty pleasure, so we are looking forward to having a boogie to some of his songs this weekend. He might only be 20 years old – and is also often compared to Justin Bieber - but he's already got a fair few hits under his belt, including 'Turn Around' featuring Ne-Yo. (NN)
We are huge fans of Ellie's cool persona and even cooler music. Not only could a potential collaboration with Calvin Harris be on the cards for this weekend (the pair worked together on Calvin's song 'I Need Your Love'), but she's also besties with Rita Ora. Imagine if all three artists came out on stage together! We think our ears would explode – in a good way. (NN)
They burst back onto our screens on The Big Reunion earlier this year and, although 5ive is technically now four, we can't wait to see the lads take to the stage! We'll definitely be 'Getting Down' with our bad selves as Abz, Scott, Richie and Sean perform all their classic hits. So..Five (watcha waiting), four (if you wanna), three (three), two (two), one let's do it! (NR)
James Arthur, Lucy Spraggan, Diana Vickers and Misha B
Since his million-selling smash hit 'Impossible', James Arthur has been working away quietly on new music. Will he give us a first listen at some brand new tracks this weekend? We're pretty sure we'll at least be hearing his newly-announced single 'You're Nobody 'Til Somebody Loves You'. And if James & Olly weren't enough for XF lovers like us, we'll also have sets from Diana Vickers, Misha B and Lucy Spraggan to enjoy! (LM)
