Calvin Harris will replace Duran Duran on the V Festival 2011 line up.

The 80’s heart throbs, famous for hits like ‘Rio’ and ‘Girls On Film’, pulled out yesterday due to singer Simon Le Bon damaging his vocal chords.

Scottish DJ and producer Calvin Harris has now been called in and will headline The Arena stage across the weekend of the 20-21 August.

Harris said: “I can’t wait to perform at V Festival – the crowds are always amazing in both Chelmsford and Stafford. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”

Also on the V Festival 2011 line up are Eminem, Rihanna, Arctic Monkeys, Plan B, Dizzee Rascal and many more.

V Festival tickets have sold out.
