V Festival 2008

Crowds at V Festival

Where is it? Hylands Park, Chelmsford, Essex and Weston Park, Staffordshire

When is it? 16-17 August

Who's gonna be there?

Girls Aloud, the Sugababes, The Kooks, and The Hoosiers are some of the big names set to play.

And with over 60 more artists still to be announced, it looks like this year's V festivals are promising to be good ones!

What's it like?

V is known for mixing pop with rock!
The V festivals are known for having more poppy chart acts than some other festivals.

That'll explain why Girls Aloud are on the same line up as the Kings of Leon!

Anything else I should know?

Tickets sold out in an hour-and-a-half, but there are still some available as part of coach packages.

Kids under 16 have to go with an adult AND have a full price ticket, with under fives going free.
