Chris Swindells - 21 October 2011
You think you know acts who will be headlining the biggest festival stages in the world in 2012? Virtual Festivals
are for the first time giving you the chance put your predictions down and win big prizes for getting it right.
Over the next seven weeks we'll be running headliner competitions for the biggest dates in the UK festival calendar, including T In The Park, Bestival, Latitude, Creamfields and The Big Chill.
We're not looking for the days the headliners will play, just guess as many of the correct headlining acts as possible, and when the headliners are announced the person who has guessed the most correctly will win a pair of VIP tickets to that festival. If two or more people have guessed the same number of right acts then a winner will be drawn at random.
Today it's your chance to guess the Sonisphere and Isle of Wight Festival 2012 - two festivals with a special place in music history.

The original home of rock, roll and free love, the island festival made history in 1970 with what was said to be the largest gathering of people in one place at the time. 600,000 people came to see the likes of The Who, Jimi Hendrix, Miles Davis, The Doors and Leonard Cohen play the festival, making history and marking the end of the decade of free love.
The festival was revived in 2002 at a new site near Newport, Isle of Wight the festival has established itself as one of the biggest and brightest events of the summer. The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Paul McCartney, Coldplay, Jay Z, Muse and The Police have all played the festival since it re-launched and it grows in size and support every year, celebrating its 10th anniversary with Kings of Leon, Kasabian and Foo Fighters this summer.
Next June it’ll move to new dates from 22-24 June and will welcome its biggest line up yet across three stages, including the prestigious Main Stage, the circus inspired Big Top and the Acoustic Stage.
Steeped in history, the iconic festival was originally founded in 1968 and continues to combine a mix of established and
new artists over an unforgettable weekend. But the question is - who will headline the Main Stage in 2012?
