Last minute band change for V

Swedish singer Robyn has joined this weekend's V Festival lineup after scoring a number one single in this week's pop charts.

She replaces The Bravery on the Virgin Mobile Union stage, playing Weston Park in Staffs on the Saturday and Hylands Park in Essex on the Sunday.

There is no news suggesting why The Bravery are no longer playing, but V Festival director Bob Angus said: "I’m really pleased that Robyn is playing this year’s V Festival. The addition of the current number one artist at this late stage really fulfils our aim of making the year’s V festival the best yet!"

Robyn stormed to the top of the charts yesterday (Sunday) with the single 'With Every Heartbeat'. 

V Festival takes place this weekend (18-19 August) and also features sets from Foo Fighters, The Killers, Snow Patrol, Kanye West, The Kooks and Primal Scream.

Amy Winehouse has given the strongest hint yet that she will be back to play her scheduled slot, following her recent collapse from a drug overdose.
