The 19-year-old is currently hanging out at the annual event in Chelmsford, Essex after jetting back from Los Angeles following One Direction’s final US gig before their mammoth Take Me Home world tour heads to Australia next month.
Having spent plenty of time mixing with the likes of Union J, Conor Maynard and Olly Murs backstage in the VIP Louder Lounge , Niall enjoyed some less familiar but no less welcome company as Saturday’s proceedings drew to a close.

In pictures posted on Twitter, the Irish heartthrob is seen giving one lucky fan a welcome kiss on the cheek as he hung out in the event’s VIP Louder Lounge that evening.
Dressed in a trendy NBA basketball vest which he later covered with a black Stussy sweater, Niall seemed to be in high-spirits as he posed for a string of photo-opportunities with various revelers – amongst them singer Pixie Lott.
But while his V experience seemed to be going well, there was the potential for an awkward encounter with Made in Chelsea star Louise Thompson.

Niall recently dismissed rumours of a blossoming romance with the reality TV personality – currently dating her co-star, Andy Jordan – as ‘ridiculous.’
‘One meeting turned into a big story, which is ridiculous, so that’s the end of that,’ he told The Sun’s Fabulous magazine.
The Kiss You singer also admitted that inaccurate stories regarding their meeting had made him very cautious.
