Showcasing the hottest mainstream stars
V Festival is one of the UK's most famous mainstream rock and pop music festivals, bringing a star-studded lineup to Essex's Hylands Park (as well as in Weston Park in Staffordshire) every August.
The last edition featured the only European performance by Jay-Z for the year, as well as sets from popstar P!nk, garage-icon Craig David and grime's hottest star Stormzy, in what was a diverse mix of genres across the weekend.
Now one of the UK's big hitters on the festival circuit, V Festival's pulling power is huge, and is therefore one of the only festivals to catch the world's biggest stars, all in one place.
The last edition included sets from Jay-Z, P!nk, Rudimental, Pete Tong, Craig David, Ellie Goulding, Jess Glynne and Stormzy.
Hylands Park is a 232-hectare park south-west of Chelmsford in Essex.
