V2002
Hylands Park, Chelmsford
Weston Park, Stafford
both 17-18 August

The Chemical Brothers and Stereophonics headlined the main stage at the original corporate festival, celebrating seven years in business under hot sunshine - with many fans at the Chelmsford site being treated for sunstroke.

Festival favourite Ian Brown also played, alongside Badly Drawn Boy, Supergrass, and Basement Jaxx. Original headliners Travis pulled out after drummer Neil Primrose injured himself in a swimming pool accident.

Over 180,000 people passed through the two sites over the two days, although Staffordshire police cautioned 350 people in a crackdown on drug use at Weston Park.
