Kanye West and Guillemots have just been confirmed for V Festival, lining up alongside headliners The Killers, Snow Patrol and Foo Fighters...

Kanye West will make what's bound to be a sensational return to V Festival, having played both events in 2004 to launch his career in the UK.

Guillemots, one of last year's festival hits, will make their first ever appearance at the August weekender.

Other acts set to be announced include Lily Allen, The Coral and Corrine Bailey Rae, who appeared on the V Festival website earlier today but weren't present on the launch press release yesterday.

Those who were definitely confirmed include The Kooks, Basement Jaxx, Kasabian, The Fratellis, Happy Mondays and Primal Scream.

Tickets for the festival, held at Hylands Park, Chelmsford, and Weston Park, Staffs, on 18-19 August, go on sale 9am Thursday morning from here.
