Focusing mainly on some of this year's breakthrough music, Das Pop, The Dodos, The Troubadors and Team Waterpolo are among the stand-out new bands on the bill.
But there are also some more familiar names playing the stage, like Infadels, Carbon Silicon, Arno Carstens, Bryn Christopher and The Rushes.
V Festival director Bob Angus said: “Last year, the Sessions Stage was a hit with fans for an appetite for new music. This year we’ve got just as good a line-up and I’m really exciting about having bands like Das Pop and The Rushes that will no doubt be on the main stage in years to come.”
The full line up is as follows:
SUGARUSH BEAT COMPANY
THE MIDWAY STATE
THE NEW YORK FUND
IGLU AND HARTLEY
THE HAZEY JANES
SONS OF ALBION

Muse, The Verve, Kings Of Leon, Stereophonics, Kaiser Chiefs, The Prodigy, The Kooks and Amy Winehouse are just a few of the names on the bill, which is almost complete but, according to organisers.... not quite.
