V Festival celebrated its 20th birthday this weekend – but who were the most memorable acts of the weekend? Here’s a photo guide…
Swedish singer Tove Lo brought tracks from her 2014 debut album ‘Queen of the Clouds’ to V Festival’s pop-leaning line-up.
Sam Smith did his sincere-soul thing at V – the next in a long line of 2015 festival appearances, that’s seen him on the mic at everywhere from Lisbon’s Nos Alive to Scotland’s T In The Park.
James Bay, pictured in a rare gale wind hitting Chelmsford this weekend. Either that, or the singer-songwriter and professional hat-wearer has got his own wind machine…
Marina Diamandis – otherwise known as odd-pop princess Marina And The Diamonds – pays tribute to acid house with an impressive smiley face jumpsuit.
The Courteeners bring some rock sass to V with sunglases, suede jackets and questionable paisley print.
The mighty Kasabian put their hands in the air like they care quite a bit, actually.
Serge Pizzorno takes a break from all that pesky standing up and playing the guitar, with an onstage lie down.
Paloma Faith subtly announces a new career as a paratrooper with her red beret, while belting out the kind of sturdy soul music that saw her bagging the Best Female award at this year’s Brits.
Jessie Ware here, having another one of her ‘Wildest Moments’. Bonkers, eh?
The Charlatans’ Tim Burgess, looking like he’s flipping the crowd a cheeky ‘V’. All in the good name of the festival, of course.
George Ezra here; voice of an eldery blues legend, face of a cast member from The Inbetweeners.
Holding up the golden oldies end of this year’s V Festival were Echo and the Bunnymen. He’s Ian McCulloch having a fag and a think about whether he’s going to see Sam Smith or George Ezra later.
Ellie Goulding, wearing what suspiciously looks like a t-shirt with her own face on it.
All hail Chvrches! Lauren Mayberry gets her black-leather clad goth vibes on for the day-glo V crowd.
Calvin Harris in a typically low-key set, made up mostly of DJing and pointing at the top of the stage.
