Roddy Woomble's rockers get on the bus to Chelmsford and Staffordshire...

Scottish four piece Idlewild have been added to the NME Stage for this year’s V2002 festival.

Previously an underground phenomenon with a great live reputation, this appearance is hot on the heels of the release of their NME-lauded and frankly storming ‘The Remote Part’ album. They play Weston Park, Staffordshire on Saturday 17th August and Hylands Park, Chelmsford on 18th August.

Their album recently hit the top three in the UK charts.

Tickets are priced at £39.50 for a one-day pass; £67.50 for a weekend pass; £80.00 for a weekend pass with camping (Weston Park only). Please note that Chelmsford camping tickets are sold out.
