the news of a rumour that Oasis have
cancelled their headline set tonight. Word on the street is that Liam has laryngitis. Snow Patrol to headline?"

Organisers have since confirmed the rumour to be true with festival chief Bob Angus commenting, "Fans will naturally be disappointed but of course - the artist's health must come first. The acts on the V Stage are sure to play their set of their lives so fans have a fantastic Sunday night at V Festival, Chelmsford."
Snow Patrol are to take the headline slot at the Essex leg of V Festival, while The Killers will still bring the Staffordshire event to a close.
