V Festival - Hylands Park

People enjoying some outdoor music

V Festival takes place on the 17-18 August at Hylands Park in Chelmsford, Essex and V Festival - Weston Park in Staffordshire.

Artists headlining Hylands Park on the Saturday are Beyoncé, The Script and Jessie J, while Kings of Leon return with new music to headline the Sunday with Stereophonics and Emeli Sandé.

Other acts on the bill for this year's V Festival include, Calvin Harris, Olly Murs, Basement Jaxx and Rita Ora.

The Glee Club comedy stage is yet to announce its line-up, but with Tim Minchin and Sean Lock headlining at V Festival last year the stage is sure not to disappoint.

Both locations share the same line-up for the weekend, bands play at one venue on the Saturday and then swap for the Sunday.
