Liam Gallagher, Bastille, Years & Years and more are playing V Festival replacement Rize

It'll be held in Chelmsford this August.
The line-up for the event replacing V Festival this summer has been revealed.

Titled Rize Festival, it will only be held at the site of the traditional Essex leg in Chelmsford, after Richard Branson announced Virgin would no longer be headline sponsor last year.

Described as a brand new festival, the line-up suggests a return to V’s original more mainstream indie routes, with Liam Gallagher and Stereophonics penciled in to headline across August 17th and 18th.

They’ll be joined by Bastille, Years & Years, James Bay, Rag’n’Bone Man, Craig David, Plan B, Manic Street Preachers, Maximo Park, Circa Waves and more.

Tickets go on sale from 9:30 am this Friday, 2nd March. You can check out the full line-up below.
