Umbrella singer Rihanna may well need her brolly today - with rain forecast for Radio 1’s Hackney Weekend in east London.
Forecasts suggest many of the acts - including Tinie Tempah, Jessie J and Professor Green- will find themselves singing in the rain.
But fans are unlikely to be discouraged by the wet weather, with some 50,000 expected to descend on the site.
A similar number turned out yesterday to watch US hip-hop star Jay-Z close the day’s event.
Barbados-born Rihanna was reunited with her mentor Jay-Z as he headlined the event on Saturday in front of 50,000 people.
She joined him on stage for a performance their hit Run This Town, to the delight of crowds.
