Concert car parks opened from 6am this morning, and visitors were being urged to get there early and avoid a build-up of heavy congestion.
But an accident this morning on the M5, southbound between junction 20 at Clevedon and junction 21 for Weston-super-Mare, is currently causing further delays as concert traffic builds up.
At 10am, slow-moving traffic was reported to be as far back as junction 18 for Avonmouth and junction 19 for Portishead.
The music is due to get under way on the T4 main stage with The Wanted at 11.50am, followed by Tulisa at 12.10pm and Cover Drive at 12.25pm.
