Jay Z, Pink, George Ezra, Busted and more announced for V Festival

Tickets for the event go on sale this Friday, 3rd March.
Jay Z and Pink will headline this year’s V Festival.

The event has made its first line up announcement this morning, with a bill that features Rudimental, Craig David, Ellie Goulding, George Ezra, Stormzy, and – hidden in the bottom there – Busted.

There’s speculation that Jay Z’s confirmation could mean he has new material on the way, as it will mark his first UK show since his 2013 Magna Carter tour.

Also confirmed today are Jason Derulo, Sean Paul, Pete Tong, Jess Glynne, Clean Bandit, Madness, Dizzee Rascal, Gorgon City, James Arthur, Anne-Marie, Jonas Blue, Sigma Live, The Vamps, The Wombats, Calum Scott, JP Cooper, Jack Savoretti, Scouting For Girls, Krept & Konan, Hannah Wants and Raye.

V Festival will take place at Weston Park in Staffordshire and Hylands Park in Chelmsford from 19th-20th August. Tickets go on general sale from 9am on Friday, 3rd March.
