V Festival

Hylands Park, Chelmsford, Essex/Weston Park, Staffordshire; August 21-22

“Ohhh, it’s so corporate! Ohhh, Hollyoaks people! Ohhh, Big Brother!” Oh, do FUCK OFF. If anybody says this to you about V, please respond with the following: “That’s one of the most tedious, boring, lame things it’s possible for a human being to say. Presumably you also think ‘All politicians are liars’ and ‘the war was all about oil’ and think Rupert Murdoch is the only company CEO who may not be a very nice man. V is actually great because there’s loads of good headliners – Kings Of Leon, Kasabian, Jamie T, the Godlike Paul Weller, and a wealth of treats lower down the bill like La Roux, Florence + The Machine and Jamie T. Right? Good.”
