Jamie T among trio of names for V Festival 2010

V Festival organisers have added a trio of acts for this year's events following two announcements in the last two weeks.

London indie lad Jamie T and rising rapper Chipmunk will be joined by Irish band The Divine Comedy who had a notable hit in the late 1990s with 'National Express'.

Speaking about the latest three acts added to the bill, Festival Director Bob Angus said: “We’re hugely excited to add Jamie T, The Divine Comedy and Chipmunk to the bill. The diversity of artists on this year’s line-up confirms our ongoing commitment to cater for all music tastes. We hope fans joining us over the V Festival weekend enjoy their favourite acts and get the chance to experience some new music too.” 

They join a slew of acts announced earlier this week including headliners Kasabian and Kings Of Leon as well as Madness, Cheryl Cole, Paul Weller, The Prodigy and many more.

V Festival Staffs 2010 will take place at Weston Park, Staffordshire and V Festival Chelmsford 2010 will take place at Hylands Park, Essex.

Both will run from 21-22 August sharing much of the same line-up.
