Hazy Days made its long-awaited return to Weston-super-Mare last night (Friday) but the party continues throughout today with a host of chart-topping names set to take to the stage.

Newton Faulkner was the stand-out act last night and today is sure to be just as exciting with a full day of music ahead.

We have a full line-up for you, so you won’t miss a thing.

If you are heading to the festival today, you could still be in with a chance to win a very special VIP experience.

Make sure you pick up a copy of The Mercury as our full-page preview has a voucher which gives you the chance to win.

Two festival-goers could enjoy a unique opportunity for one of the organising team to take them backstage to see how the festival runs.

Winners will also be invited to meet a few of the performers too, and experience a festival in full-swing ahead of the party, where Rude Awakenings will perform.

For a chance to win, fill in the form in the Mercury and take it along to the festival.

You can then hand in your form on the door and the lucky winners will be picked during a draw on the main stage.

This will take place at 1.50pm today; though if the holder of the winning ticket is not at the venue at this time, an alternative winner will be picked.

The winners will have their tickets upgraded and experience the full VIP effect for the rest of the festival.

Pop star Ellis-Bextor will be one of the biggest acts to grace the Weston stage later on.

She first came onto the music scene in 2001, releasing her debut album Read My Lips, which soared to number two in the official chart.

Ellis-Bextor will perform a number of hits, new and old, as she celebrates having released six studio albums.

She has also made a host of televisions appearances over the past few years, including a stint on BBC One’s Strictly Come Dancing.

She was a finalist in the show and it sparked the comeback of her musical career. She has also performed at a host of charity concerts, as she is extremely passionate about tackling child poverty.

As well as the 38-year-old, you can also expect to hear some fantastic performances from Fun Lovin’ Criminals, Sian Evans, The Neville Staple Band and Reef.

Make sure you send us all your pictures and videos from the event by commenting on Facebook or tweeting us @WSMERCURY.
