Hard-Fi have been added to the bill for V Festival 2011.
The Staines band revealed that they were the “special guests” on the Undercover Stage at the twin events on their Facebook page, confirming that they would play ”Stafford on Saturday & Chelmsford on Sunday.”
Channel 4 will also show highlights and 4Music will air live coverage of the festivals this weekend.
Arctic Monkeys and Eminem are this year’s headliners, with Rhianna, Plan B, Kaiser Chiefs, Dizzee Rascal, Chase & Status, Tinie Tempah and Razorlight among the other acts set to play.
V Festival 2011 takes place at Hylands Park, Chelmsford and Weston Park, Stafford on 20–21 August.
While tickets for both sites are sold out, secondary ticketing site Viagogo has Weekend Tickets for Stafford going from £130 and Chelmsford from £142.
Each ticket bought from them is guaranteed or they will give fans their money back.
If you’re still working out how to get there, Big Green Coach still has seats for both Chelmsford and Stafford available, starting from £24 return.
