Other favorites include Richard Hawley's Standing AT Sky's Edge, Florence + The Machine's Ceremonials and Sweet Billy Pilgrim's Crown and Treaty, which have 10/1 odds each.

The Maccabees, Emeli Sande, Hot Chip and Django Django are 14/1, while Portico Quartet are at 16/1. Artists at 20/1 odds include Coldplay, Michael Kiwanuka, Bombay Bicycle Club, Jessie Ware and Rumer, while Ed Sheeran, Orbital and Pulled Apart By Horses are at 25/1.

Meanwhile, Marine & The Diamonds and The Ting Tings are the long shots, with odds of 100/1 and 150/1 respectively. Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, Mystery Jets and Plan B are not even listed in the betting so far.
