Have a V Fantastic Summer

Posted on 19 June 2011 by Chris Knight

It’s that time of year again, as summer draws near we all know what is coming, it’s the season of the Festival.  So find those dancing wellies, and recover your moth eaten tent from the garage, because this year’s festivals look set to impress, with fantastic line ups and the promise of hot weather.

V Festival has become a massive hit in the festival calendar. The event is held in 2 locations over 2 days and artists perform at both swapping on each night.  The action will take place at Hylands Park in Chelmsford and Weston Park in South Staffordshire (near Stafford), and the fun will be broadcast live on Channel4.

V festival was originally created by Richard Branson in 1996, and like anything Branson touches, it turned to gold, and fast became one of the big boys of the music festivals, with an impressive line up year on year and a track record of success.

With the exception perhaps of Glastonbury, V Festival is the King of the Festivals.  You only have to look at the line up to know this is no ordinary event.  With big names such as Rhianna, Eminem, Kaiser Chiefs, Arctic Monkeys, Jessie J, The Saturdays, and many more, visitors will be hard pressed to cram all the headliners in.

Some of the biggest names in the music industry have played at V, with this year being no exception, and many break through acts got their break right on the V stage, before taking the Country by storm.

Already sold out, with just over 2 months to go until the event, the demand for tickets speaks for itself, as music lovers scramble to get these coveted tickets.  Now, the only options left to V Festival hopefuls is to win competitions for tickets, or beg steal or borrow from the few who find they can’t make it.

V festival has seen such success it has now branched out globally, with V festivals popping up in Australia and Canada, however like so many things, the original is always the best, and it is the UK V festival that draws in the big names and music fans in their masses.

The musical line up always features current chart toppers, alongside breakthrough acts and big name established groups.

This summer is set to be a hot one, which makes V an even more attractive prospect, as though another reason was needed!  If you’re a music lover, and like partying your way through summer, then V is the event for you.

If 2010 is anything to go by then you will not want to miss V in 2011.  With more announcements being made all the time, V Festival is the place for music lovers to be this summer.

Those lucky few with tickets can prepare to be spoilt by a line up like no other to find out more check out
