The music festivals this year are more diverse than they have been in the past, there's no doubt about that - but it still doesn't mean that you won't see the same artists popping up over and over again.

Yes, some bands are going to have a very busy summer ahead of them. We took a look at the major festivals - V, Wireless, Great Escape, Reading/Leeds, Bestival, Latitude, Coachella and Primavera - and took it upon ourselves to work out which musicians will be the most exhausted by the end of the festival circuit.

So if you're going to a number of festivals and want to know which bands you're likely to run into, don't worry, because we've got it sorted. From the sunny climes of California and Coachella Valley to the rain-soaked fields of Reading and Leeds, some bands are going to have a very long few months ahead of them.
