All-star line-up announced for 2013 V Festival

Some of the biggest music acts in the world will be performing live at the 2013 V Festival, which takes place on July 17th and 18th 2013.

The event takes place during the penultimate weekend in August and is held simultaneously at Hylands Park and Weston Park, with both venues sharing the same bill and swapping artists between the two days.

Stars such as Beyonce, The Script, Jessie J, Paloma Faith, Beady Eye, Mark Owen, Conor Maynard, The Fratellis, James Arthur and The Courtneers will appear at Hylands on the Saturday and Weston on Sunday.

Meanwhile, the alternate programme will include acts such as Kings of Leon, Stereophonics, Emeli Sande, The Vaccines, Olly Murs, Jason Mraz, The Saturdays, Calvin Harris, Rita Ora, Basement Jaxx, Jamie Cullum and many more.

Tickets for the event are on sale now, with the festival set to be attended by thousands of music fans.

The concept for the V Festival was conceived by Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker - who wanted a way of playing at two outdoor venues in two days back in 1996 - with the resulting event growing in scale and popularity each year since.
