V Festival - Weston Park

The weather can have a big impact on summer festivals in the UK.

V Festival takes place on the 16-17 August at Weston Park in South Staffordshire and V Festival - Hylands Park in Chelmsford, Essex.

The Killers will headline Weston Park on the Saturday along with crowd favourites Paolo Nutini and Lily Allen. Justin Timberlake will headline and close the show on the Sunday, with Ed Sheeran and Example playing before hand.

Other acts on the bill over the weekend include:

  • Rudimental
  • Elbow
  • Jason Deluro    
  • Katy B
  • Chase & Status

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

Alan Carr and  Adam Hills will headline the Glee Comedy Stage at both venues.

The festival began in 1996 after the lead singer of the band Pulp had the idea of playing two venues over a weekend. The festival then went from one band playing to a weekend in two locations with two stages and camping for the weekend. Hylands Park in Essex is the other V Festival site.

Festival-goers will be looking for a warm and dry weekend, with a gentle breeze.
