Groove Armada's weekend bash Lovebox welcomes The Wombats to clear skies and a pleasant warm high of 23°C tomorrow (Friday 15) but will turn showery for Snoop Dogg on Saturday with heavier rain expected for the closing day as Scissor Sisters headline Sunday 17 at the Hyde Park event.

Further south in the southern counties, Guilfest 2011 will again start dry with sunny intervals and a pleasant low of 14°C at night on Friday, but will turn wet on Saturday and Sunday.

Latitude Festival 2011 attendees might also want to bring the wellies as the sun only makes a brief appearance on Friday, and already soggy ground is likely to be damp come Sunday as the rain continues throughout the weekend, though temperatures remain mild with highs of 18°C and nightly lows of 14°C.

Bjork might not end up missing the Icelandic weather as she completes her residency at Manchester International Festival this weekend, the weather will be wet throughout the weekend with Saturday and Sunday forecast to hit daily highs of 18°C.

Those thinking they're lucky enough to be escaping to the southern most corner of Spain for Benicassim 2011 to enjoy the coast and festival vibe with less weather worries might still want to bring their plastic tipped umbrella as thunder and rain are expected Friday. The remainder of the weekend is set to be sunny with highs of 32°C on Sunday and a pleasant nightly low of 22°C on Saturday.
