Fans rush to make sure they get into this year's event...

Weekend tickets for the V FESTIVAL, which features acts such as THE STROKES and MUSE, have sold out.

Day tickets for the festival, which takes place at Weston Park, Staffordshire and Hylands Park, Chelmsford are still available.

Festival director Bob Angus commented: “Within hours of announcing the latest acts, including Amy Winehouse and Kanye West, the last of the camping tickets were snapped up. V is now an essential part of the summer diary and music lovers have proved this by booking tickets 14 weeks in advance!”

Another addition to this year event is the New Band Stage, which will play host to the lesser-known new talent. The line-up for the stage has not yet been announced.

Camping tickets for the festival, which takes place over August 21-22, cost £46.50.
