We've heard a strong rumour that tickets to V Festival 2005 may go on-sale this week, accompanied by a major announcement - Oasis and Maroon 5 to headline, with Scissor Sisters and Ian Brown on the bill!

This information is yet to be officially confirmed, but we’ll be the first to let you know when any more details are available.

If we’re correct about the headliners, the festival – scheduled to take place at the dual sites of Hylands Park, Chelmsford and Weston Park, Staffordshire on August 20 and 21 – is set to follow the alternating rock n’ roll/ pop headliner formula it pioneered last year with The Strokes and Dido. The bizarre combination proved surprisingly effective and marked the first time a major festival has successfully crossed between the traditionally adverse genres.

Stay posted for the first official news on V Festival 2005.
