A wet start didn't dampen the spirits of festivalgoers, who gathered in their thousands to watch Olly Murs kick-off the second day of the Big Weekend.
Graphic designer Fran Bennett, 27, who lives near Dereham Road, and friend Lauren Davis, 28, sported matching pink ponchos to keep the rain off.
'We're having a great time,' said Miss Bennett. 'The ultimate highlight of the day is going to be Taylor.'
Fans queued to have their photos taken next to a Taylor Swift billboard.
Cheeky chappy Olly Murs entertained the audience earlier today, finishing off his set with a funk compilation which the crowd loved.

Singer Raury has finished his set at the In New Music We Trust and has drawn the crowds with his showmanship.
The line-up for the main stage on Sunday is Clean Bandit, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Rita Ora, Imagine Dragons, George Ezra, Taylor Swift and finally headliners the Foo Fighters.
George Ezra said: 'This is the only place you'll find me and Taylor Swift performing on the same stage and I think that's great - a lot of countries don't have a station like Radio 1 that plays all different kind of music.
'For me festivals aren't about the line-up but the atmosphere and festivals are becoming more and more accessible.'
'I grew up with festival and it's kind of a right of passage. When I was 16 I went to Reading for the first time and I used to go to Latitude a lot.
'I feel at home but I'll be honest, I don't camp anymore. I did camp once last year but woke up thinking 'what a silly idea, I've got to perform'.'
