Robert Pattinson was spotted in the crowd watching FKA twigs at Bestival.

The singer is quickly rising to the top of the music game, and delighted crowds at her Bestival set on Friday.

The festival is one of the last in the British music calendar, and this year saw Hollywood superstar Robert cheering on his fiancée from the audience.

"He kept his head down and looked like he was really enjoying watching her perform. He looked very proud of her and completely in love. At one point he sang along to one of her songs - he looked like her No.1 fan," an onlooker told British newspaper Metro.

Other acts to take to the stage over the weekend included Missy Elliott, Charli XCX and The Chemical Brothers, as well as 80s hitmakers Duran Duran.

The band's drummer Roger Taylor had a chat with Metro about how he can relate to Zayn Malik, who shocked fans when he quit One Direction in March. Like Zayn, Roger also walked away from fame and fortune when Duran Duran were at the height of their global domination.

"I do relate a lot when I see a band go from zero to hero in ten minutes - it's a lot to take on board.

I totally understood when Zayn had to take some time out," he said.

"When you're in the eye of that storm, especially at a young age, you never imagine it's going to end. My advice to younger artists is take your time. The world will wait if your material and gigs are good enough."
