It’s not looking good for Creamfields 2011 ticket holders heading out to Cheshire tomorrow (26 August) as they will be welcomed to the festival with heavy rain. 

Saturday (27 August) looks to bring more showers for Katy B, The Chemical Brothers, Calvin Harris and more. These are expected to clear up and turn into sunny intervals throughout Sunday with temperatures reaching 15°C. 

Reading Festival 2011 weather doesn’t look much better either.
Standard ticket holders heading to Reading have got away lightly with only a sprinkling of rain hitting the festival today and tomorrow (25 and 26 August). 

The light rain is due to continue into Saturday for fans taking to the main stage to watch headliners The Strokes, before Sunday wraps up with highs of 18°C.

The mass of campers heading to Leeds Festival 2011 today will be bringing the sun with them as temperatures look to reach 19°C

Although the punters will be testing out their cheap Tesco wellies on Friday as heavy rain is predicted throughout the day and into the evening for fans watching headliners Muse.

Indoor stages such as the NME/Radio 1 stage may be popular on Saturday during The Vaccines and The Naked And Famous as thunder storms have been predicted throughout the day. 

On the bright side sunny intervals are due on Sunday, so campers can finally dry off whilst in the crowd for Madness, Two Door Cinema Club and more.

The best weather results will be for those heading to Clapham Common on Saturday and Sunday for South West Four 2011

Expect some mud from the rain due on Thursday and Friday, with light showers on Saturday to continue for headliners Underworld. Although the crowd will be heated up on Sunday for Pendulum as highs of 20°C are expected.
