Kelis, who recently confirmed her debut London show at Shepherd’s Bush Empire for June 22, has been confirmed to play at both sites, as have Feeder, who recently headlined one of the NME Premier Awards shows at London’s WC1 Astoria.
It is yet to be confirmed on which day each band will play.
This year’s V2000 festival takes place at Weston Park, Staffordshire, and Hylands Park, Chelmsford, on the weekend of August 19-20. Other headliners include Richard Ashcroft, making his solo live performances and Travis as headliners on the other night. All Saints, Moby, Macy Gray and Paul Weller are all also confirmed to play.
