The weekend has just begun for thousands of fans heading to Standon Calling near Bishop's Stortford.
Sugababes, Declan McKenna, Basement Jaxx, Craig David and Sigrid are also on this year's bill.
The event will follow a searing heatwave throughout the UK, when a 39.2C high was recorded at nearby Buntingford on Tuesday, July 19, breaking previous Hertfordshire records.
But the Met Office's Thursday morning (today, July 21) forecast includes cooler temperatures throughout the county this weekend, including cloud coverage today and tomorrow.
Alex Deakin, a Met Office forecaster, said: "We expect a fresher start to Thursday - a fairly cloudy start with maybe a few showers over the East, but not as intense as the downpours that we've seen on Wednesday afternoon."
Alex Deakin added that sunny spells are likely, and after a "fairly cool" night, Friday could bring temperatures of up to 26C in the London region in particular.
The temperature should pick up by Sunday, when the mercury is set to reach 27C.
Standon Calling takes place in the Hertfordshire countryside between Ware and Bishop's Stortford.
