Park, Chelmsford, and the Sunday at Weston Park, Staffs. A festival spokesperson confirmed
that the band will not have a co-headliner (well, could you imagine the Gallaghers sharing?).

to the line-up are a few long-rumoured acts including Embrace, Maroon 5, Ian Brown,
Athlete and Doves. The surprises come in the shape of Robert Plant, Texas
Dizzee Rascal, Goldfrapp, The Zutons,
Joss Stone, and Goldie Lookin' Chain provide the V trademark 'something for
everyone', with Kaiser Chiefs, The Bravery, Thirteen Senses, 22-20s
and The Music also on the bill.
As yet it is unknown what days and stages they will be performing
on. They join the likes of Franz Ferdinand, Scissor Sisters, The Prodigy
and The Chemical Brothers - all previously confirmed.
