Metro (UK newspaper) named her in their top 10 acts to watch at the festival.
Lana Del Rey
Love her or loathe her, the artist formerly known as Lizzy Grant certainly draws a crowd, as her early evening Lovebox Festival set has recently proven.
Inspiring fanatical devotion and mocking derision in equal measure, it’s worth heading over to the Big Top stage to draw your own conclusions - and inevitably swooning over the luscious ‘Video Games’ of course.

No-one rains on her parade! Lana Del Rey performs at the Isle Of Wight Festival despite downpour turning venue into swamp

It's been written off by many as a wash-out weekend as constant downpours have turned the Isle Of Wight into a swampland.
But despite the festival turning into a mudbath on a grand scale, Lana Del Rey took to the stage to give a stellar performance for the sodden crowds.
The 26-year-old took to the stage in a fringed purple crop top, denim hotpants and heeled trainers, defying the rain as she belted out her hits.
She gave away no sign of being cold, though the wind must have caused her some discomfort.
Lana wore her hair in its usual beehive, and added a classic touch with a flick of black eyeliner and scarlet lipstick. She certainly threw everything into the show, kneeling on stage to accentuate the passionate delivery.

Opening night of Isle Of Wight festival is huge success after early weather fears
Despite concerns over weather problems at this year's Isle Of Wight festival, Tom Petty and Lana Del Rey took to the stage for spectacular performances last night (22 June, 2012).
Performing to soaking, mud-splattered crowds, Lana Del Rey thrilled crowds with tracks from her chart topping debut album 'Born To Die' while sporting the beehive hairstyle she was seen with at last weekend's Lovebox festival in London.
