The two day pop festival is back in the North and South of England on the weekend of Saturday the 18th and Sunday the 19th of August. V Festival will be returning to Western Park in Telford, Shropshire, and Hylands Park in Chelmsford, London, to showcase a line-up of the best in British music, as well as a mix of international pop acts.
Known as V Festival since 2003, the festival originally took on the name of the year when it began in 1996, with the first V Festival being named "V96”. Created by Jarvis Cocker, the exhibitionist front man from English alternative rock band, Pulp, V festival enabled the band to solve the problem of performing for their fans, in the North and South of England, at two outdoor venues over two consecutive days. Since V Festival began in 1996 its popularity has grown year on year, along with the big names that now take to the stage.
Headlining at V Festival 2012 are the legendary, cinnamon sweet, home-grown rockband, The Stone Roses, and American rock band, The Killers. UK top 40 chart acts also taking to the stage include Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Snow Patrol, Nicki Minaj, David Guetta, Tinie Tempah, Ed Sheernan, Rizzle Kicks, Maverick Sabre, plus many more!
