Foxes, 25

First festival memory: 'My mum took me to Glastonbury as a toddler; I was in one of those things that strapped on her back and she would take me everywhere.'

Festival necessities: 'Dry Shampoo and a Polaroid camera.'

What are you wearing today on stage? 'This year, Topshop and I worked closely together. Today I’m wearing an Ashish x Topshop leotard, shorts and a mesh bomber - all from Topshop - and my Moschino belt.'

Ella Eyre, 20

First festival memory: '2010 Glastonbury. I got to see Stevie Wonder perform, which really made it for me.'

Festival necessities: 'Baby wipes, and a good shoe. Even if it's sunny, I think wellies do it for me - you’ve got to protect your toes!'

What are you wearing today? 'Nike dunks, round Ray Bans and a baseball shirtdress. I’ve got to be comfortable when I’m on stage, as I really like to move around.'

Jess Glynne, 24

First festival memory: 'Nottingham, No Tomorrow Festival. I started the festival [thing] a bit late it seems compared to everyone else.'

Festival necessities: 'Baby wipes, water, tissues… Anything that will help you get clean!'

Describe your stage style: 'It’s all about being comfortable; I normally wear all black but then a splash of colour. Which is why I love the shirt that I’m wearing today.'

What are you wearing today? 'American Apparel top and disco leggings, vintage Versace shirt and belt, Quay sunglasses.'

Kiesza, 25

First festival memory: 'I’m from Canada where we have a folk festival every year. I used to go to them all the time growing up.'

Festival necessities: 'Sunscreen! I burn really easily.'

Describe your hair style: 'It’s actually an evolving style. When I first started I really wanted to shave my hair into a Mohawk, but I change my mind all the time so I was scared that after two weeks I’d hate it. So my hairstylist did this style, and it sort of stuck. One day it's super sleek, like at the Fendi party in Cannes, and then today it’s more messy and fun.'

Describe your style: 'I really like wearing new brands. Today I am wearing a brand from Toronto called Nozo, and I customized the trousers that I’m wearing. I dance and move about on stage, so I need to make sure I can do that.'
