Seven more stars have been announced for this year’s V Festival.
The festival takes place on 22nd and 23rd August at both Hylands Park and Weston Park, with headliners Kasabian and Calvin Harris announced.
Other already confirmed acts include Sam Smith, Olly Murs, James Bay, The Script, Ellie Goulding, George Ezra and Clean Bandit.
Now, seven more names have been added. Mark Ronson, the star behind one of the biggest hits of the year “Uptown Funk”, will appear for a DJ set, while Example will also perform. Scouting For Girls, former JLS singer Aston Merrygold and singer songwriter Maverick Sabre are also added to the list. The announcement is completed by Tove Lo and Bleachers.
It’s expected that more names will be added before the festival, which this year celebrates its 20th anniversary, takes place.
Following the announcement on V Festival’s website, Aston Merrygold said: “I’m so excited to be performing at V Festival for the first time, it’s going to be great fun! It has definitely been tough trying to contain myself, sitting on my hands waiting to get out there with new material, so I can’t wait to finally share my music with everyone…bring it on!!!”
Meanwhile, Example commented: “I can’t wait to return to V Festival, the crowds never disappoint. A lot of people will be used to my shows with the live band behind me, but this time I’ll be bringing DJ Wire as I want to put on a unique rave with a twist.
“I’ve been lucky enough to perform at festivals all over the world but there’s always something special about V Festival – it feels like my home turf.”Find more posts about v festival
