V Festival weather report – five days to go

Kings Of Leon and Kasabian set for weekend bash

There are five days to go until V Festival kicks off in Stafford and Chelmsford (August 21-22), and the first weather reports for both festival sites are starting to come in.

According to Metcheck, both sites should remain relatively dry for the duration of the festival. However, BBC Weather is at present predicting heavy rain on the Friday (August 20) for both Chelmsford and Stafford, suggesting that festivalgoers arriving early should be prepared for damp conditions.

Kings Of Leon, Kasabian, The Prodigy and Paul Weller are all set to play the festival.
