For revellers in Devon at Beautiful Days 2011 the forecast looks dry, with light winds and sunny intervals throughout the weekend. Friday will see daily highs of 18°C, prepping up to 20°C on Saturday and the most beautiful day of the three on Sunday as it reaches 21°C, with nightly lows never dropping below double figures accross the weekend.

The weather will look a little less favourably on the folk at Green Man Festival 2011 with a dry Friday evening and a wet Saturday forecasting light rain. Sunday and Monday will return to dry conditions with temperatures hitting highs of 18°C. Late night fun on Sunday will be the chilliest of the weekend with a low of 9°C at night.

The Chelmsford leg of V Festival will welcome 'The Only Way Is Essex' cast with bright skies Friday, although heavy rain forecast today (Thursday 18) will have left parts of the site a little sodden. The good weather will hold until Monday where heavy rain showers will replace the sunny skies. Temperatures remain steady throughout the weekend for headliners Eminem and Arctic Monkeys with highs of 23°C on Saturday and Sunday and sunny intervals.

Further north for V Festival's Staffordshire leg the outlook is a little less settled with cloudy skies predicted throughout. Saturday may see some light rain with temperatures reaching an estimated 17°C. Sunday has the best forecast of the weekend with Sunny intervals and 21°C highs.
