The dance event is named in four categories including best major festival alongside Download, Reading and Leeds and last year's winner Bestival.

It is also up for headline performance of the year for The Prodigy's set and is named in the best dance and best toilets categories.

The winners will be announced on 2 December at London's Roundhouse.

More than 500,000 votes were cast to decide the nominees.

Glastonbury is also nominated for the best major festival prize as well getting two nods in the headline performance of the year category for sets by Arctic Monkeys and The Rolling Stones.

Latitude is also up for three awards including best medium sized festival.

The Festival Awards also acknowledge bands and tracks that stood out over the summer.

Disclosure, Rudimental and Haim are all named in the breakthrough of the year category, which Jake Bugg picked up in 2012.

Bastille's Pompeii and Radioactive by Imagine Dragons are up for anthem of the summer.

The winners of most of the awards will be chosen by public vote but there are also separate industry-focussed categories.

Those include promoter of the year and best brand activation for the most creative and well-executed sponsor activity.

A new category for this year is the festival technology award, which will recognise how new innovations are changing the experience for the festival-goer.
