Voting for the semi-finalists in this year's Road to V closes this Sunday, so get your skates on if you want to give a hopeful band a chance to open this year's V Festival.
You can vote for two artists to go through to the semi-finals so use your votes wisely. The two artists with the most votes will get to perform alongside our mentors The Charlatans and Just Jack at The Great Escape Festival in Brighton.
After The Great Escape performances, the mentors will whittle the finalists down to just three each. From there, it’s up to the Road to V fans and voters to decide which of the six finalists will go on to win Road to V 2009, and open V Festival in August.
Previous Road To V winners include Young Knives (who went on to receive a Mercury Award nomination in 2007) and Bombay Bicycle Club (who signed a deal with Island Records in 2008).
