The festival raised over $3 million for the Manchester Emergency Fund and sold out with a massive attendance of over 50,000 people. TMZ reports the total funds raised including donations is at $12 million and growing steadily.

The show sold out in under six minutes and was broadcast to over 14.6 million viewers on the BBC alone. As it was also streamed online over YouTube, Twitter and Facebook, so the total viewing figure will be far higher.
