X Factor stars Jedward were forced to abandon their performance at T4 On The Beach after Edward was carried off on a stretcher.
The Irish duo - 18-year-old twins John and Edward Grimes - were on stage at the event in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, when Edward fell and badly hurt his knee in front of around 50,000 people.
"Following a fall during a performance at T4 On The Beach this Sunday, we can confirm that Edward has torn his knee ligaments and will require surgery on his injuries," the boys' spokeswoman said.
"He is expected to make a quick recovery and both John and Edward are determined to see out their album promotion and Irish tour commitments."
The Dublin-born brothers release their debut album, Planet Jedward, at the end of the month.
