Other celebrity appearances on the day include Professor Green, Dermot O’Leary, Keith Lemon, Paddy McGuinness and Joel Dommett.

Money raised from Flackstock will be split equally between the charities Choose Love, Mind, Samaritans and Charlie Waller Trust.

Caroline’s mother Christine said: “My Caroline was never more herself or happier than at a music festival with her sister and her friends.

“Flackstock is the wonderful idea of those who knew her best and the perfect way to remember her singing, dancing and most of all laughing.

“Not only is Flackstock the most positive way to honour Carrie, but charities that she loved will benefit from the proceeds.

“A big thank you to everyone involved for all their hard work.

“My family are so proud that so many people who knew Carrie loved her so very much.”

Head of community and events fundraising at Mind Ian O’Reilly said: “Every donation that Mind receives through Flackstock will allow us to be there for even more people when they need us.

"This includes through services like the Mind Infoline, legal line and our online peer support community for adults, Side by Side.

"The money will also enable us to continue to campaign to improve services and provide information and support.

“We are honoured to be involved and we can’t wait for the festival to get started.”
