V Festival Director, Bob Angus said: “After two successful years of hosting live music on our fourth stage, we have a proven track record of bands progressing to the main stages and we are honoured to have helped some of them in the early stages of their careers. We’re really pleased that Virgin Mobile are on board with us, extending their long term headline status”
