The Ting Tings were the other major winner scoring a hat-trick of prizes.

The duo won the vote for best festival pop act, best live newcomer and anthem of the summer for That's Not My Name.

The ceremony took place at London's Indigo venue at the O2 arena.

Kings Of Leon beat off competition from The Verve, Metallica, Muse and Rage Against The Machine to win the best festival headline act.

Biffy Clyro also picked up the best festival rock act ahead of Bloc Party, Elbow, The Raconteurs and Bullet For My Valentine.

T In The Park was awarded the best line-up while Irish festival Oxegen the prize for best European festival.

Best festival dance act went to The Prodigy and Dizzee Rascal was awarded best urban act.
