  • We're still not sure about using Skrillex as a hair model, but The 1975 crack the top 10 with 'Chocolate'. Delicious.

  • They pulled one of the biggest crowds of Bestival 2013, and all those people absolutely lost it for Rudimental's 'Feel The Love'. A proper summer anthem in at 9.

  • It's those Foals in again at number 3 with the impossible to resist 'My Number'. A particular favourite of the NME festival crew, this one.

  • They didn't even play live this summer, nevermind a festival, but enough of you still loved Daft Punk's 'Get Lucky' enough for hundreds of you to vote it in at number 2.

  • It is, as they might put it, the Number 1 Festival Anthem. You can't get enough of Arctic Monkeys at the moment, and you voted in a landslide for 'Do I Wanna Know?'. The Elvis accent wasn't too offputting, then.
