Pete Tong, Tiesto, Danny Howard and Martin Garrix took to the stage as well as other Radio 1 DJs Annie Mac and Zane Lowe.

Kings of Leon, The Vamps, John Newman, Rita Ora, The 1975, Tinie Tempah and Paolo Nutini will all perform on the Sunday, with Katy Perry closing the festival.

This is a wonderful opportunity to develop a creative project. Keep a notebook where you can store images, ideas, phrases and melodies that pop into your mind at odd intervals.

Exercising your imagination on a regular basis will cultivate contentment. There's more to you than your job title.More
