After last ear’s rock-slanted line-up (Kasabian and Kings Of Leon headlined), V Festival 2011 is looking a bit more pop. Arctic Monkeys and Eminem are set to headline. Next down on the bill? Rihanna and Plan B.

Further acts set to play include Tinie Tempah, The Courteeners and The Wombats. Primal Scream will play their 1991 album ‘Screamadelica’ in full – the first time they’ve taken that set to a UK festival.
