TICKETS ON SALE NOW www.vfestival.com V Festival 2015, sponsored by Virgin Media, is pulling out all of the stops to celebrate 20 years since it opened its gates â€˜96, unveiling an incredible home-grown line up. Global platinum-selling artist Calvin Harris and Iconic rockers Kasabian are today announced as the headliners on the V Festival Virgin Media stage. Taking place across the weekend of the 22nd and 23rd August 2015, the local lads from Leicester and the DJ from north of the border will be joined by a host of music heavyweights to ensure V Festival kicks-off its third decade in style. Joining the headliners across the two festival sites in Hylands Park, Chelmsford and Weston Park, Staffordshire will be a supporting cast of Britainâ€™s finest talent and biggest names. Music lovers with this summerâ€™s hottest ticket will also see performances from recent four-time Grammy and 2015 Brit winner Sam Smith, Ellie Goulding, The Script, Hozier, George Ezra, Stereophonics, Brit winners Paloma Faith and James Bay, Olly Murs, Tom Jones, Clean Bandit, Kodaline, Ella Henderson, Nero and Courteeners plus many more to be announced across four stages at the two festival sites. Making his debut on top of the bill, Calvin Harris said: â€œV Festival is always an incredible time and I can\'t wait to headline it this year. See you there!â€ Kasabianâ€™s Sergio Pizzorno, said: â€œV is for victory, V is for voodoo, V is for vacuum cloud, V is for very very very very excited. See you in the fields!â€ The hugely popular Glee Club Comedy Tent also returns as the festivalâ€™s fifth stage this year, with a hilarious line-up that will be announced in the coming months. Festival Director, Simon Moran comments: â€œWe wanted to champion British talent at this yearâ€™s festival and with the likes of Calvin and Kasabian leading the way we donâ€™t think itâ€™ll disappoint. The eclectic mix of established artists and rising stars, with a few more in the pipeline, means that once again there is something for everyone at V Festival. â€œItâ€™s incredible to think what V has achieved in two decades. When we started out in â€˜96, we were two stages and one tent, with the northern site only hosting one day of acts. Since then weâ€™ve hosted some of the most iconic acts from around the world. Hereâ€™s to another decade!â€ Over the festival weekend thereâ€™ll also be sets from The Kooks, Marina & The Diamonds, The Proclaimers, Jess Glynne, Andy C, Imelda May, Gregory Porter, Fuse ODG, Clean Bandit, Duke Dumont, Jessie Ware, Ella Eyre, Hannah Wants, Reverend & the Makers, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five and Annie Mac. The glamorous V Style camping will also return for its fifth year. V Style is now an established part of the V Festival family, giving music fans the chance to experience the best of both worlds â€“ enjoying a mix of music and comedy and relaxing at pampering stations and in ready built bell tents, huts, and luxury yurts. Festival Director, Bob Angus comments: â€œAs in previous years, we want to again emphasise how important it is for fans to buy their tickets from official outlets listed on VFestival.com. This will ensure they donâ€™t miss out on what promises to be an non-stop fun-packed weekend.â€ Tickets go on sale from March 6th at 9am with fans advised to visit www.vfestival.com, where all official outlets are detailed. V organisers again stress to fans that purchasing tickets from unofficial outlets could lead to disappointment. The full line up includes: Kasabian, Calvin Harris, Sam Smith, Ellie Goulding, The Script, Hozier, George Ezra, Stereophonics, Paloma Faith, James Bay, Olly Murs, Chvrches, Imelda May, Kodaline, Ella Henderson, James Bay, Nero, Reverend & the Makers, The Courteeners, Marina & The Diamonds, The Proclaimers, Tom Jones, Jess Glynne, Andy C, The Kooks, Gregory Porter, Fuse ODG, Clean Bandit, Duke Dumont, Jessie Ware, Ella Eyre, Hannah Wants and Annie Mac.
