V2000 NET STAR-STUDDED SOCCER LINE UP

Ocean Colour Scene, Bez and Goldie are among those taking part...

Ocean Colour Scene, GOLDIE, LEEROY THORNHILL, BEZ, KEITH ALLEN and cast members from THE BILL, CORONATION STREET, HOLLYOAKS and BROOKSIDE are all scheduled to take part in a celebrity five-a-side football competition at V2000.

The celebrities, who also include members of Shed Seven, Phil Daniels, TV presenters Gail Porter and Donna Air and ex-professional footballers Phil Neal, Ian Rush, Kenny Sansom and Gordon Strachan will take part at a daily event at the Weston Park leg of the festival. It is not anticipated that the football tournament will take place at Hylands Park.

As previously revealed on nme.com, Jurassic 5 have pulled out of V2000 following injuries sustained to members of the band in a car crash. However, Welsh band Big Leaves have now joined the bill on the MTV Peoplesound.com stage.

This year’s festival takes place over the weekend of August 19-20 at Hylands Park, Chelmsford and Weston Park, Stafford.
