Ellis said bands had been singing the praises of the event and audience figures are “well up” on the previous year and could near 250,000.

He said: “I’m really pleased with it. The atmosphere every day has been great, the spirit, the mood of the people has been really wonderful.

“They’ve been a really well behaved but up for it crowd . The reactions to performances has been brilliant, all the bands have gone away really happy.

“Queen and Adam Lambert on the Friday night said it was a brilliant gig. They were blown away by the crowd reaction and the crowd were blown away by their performance.

“The Killers got here early so they had a good look round and think the site looks great and are really excited about playing tonight.

“We were sold out for the Arctic Monkeys, sold out for Liam Gallagher and I’m really pleased with the attendances on the other days.

“It’s been a great atmosphere and the weather has been tremendous as well… just a great festival, beyond our best hopes really.”
