Muse have been confirmed to headline this summer's V festival.

The slots on 16-17 August at Hylands Park, Chelmsford and Weston Park, Stafford, will mark the band's only European Festival appearances of 2008.
Muse's headline slot at last year's Isle of Wight festival was regarded as one of the weekend's highlights.
The trio also picked up a Brit for best live band.
Festival veterans Muse played a host of live gigs last year, including the biggest gig of their career - two nights at the newly-opened Wembley.
The band will be releasing a live album and DVD of that performance later this year.
More V2008 acts are expected to be announced soon.
Tickets for the event go on sale 7 March.
