The tickets sold at a "phenomenal speed"...

Camping tickets at the V FESTIVAL in HYLANDS PARK have sold out.

Organisers have issued a statement today that reveals the news. However, they are still available for Weston Park in Staffordshire.

Day passes and weekend passes without camping are also still available for both festival sites.

Festival Director Bob Angus said: “Camping tickets have already sold out at phenomenal speed and we haven’t even fully announced the line up. We’ve broken last year’s record – V has been on sale for 2 weeks, which is a massive achievement for us and shows that V is well and truly established as being a part of people’s summer.”

The V Festival takes place on 21 and 22 August at Hylands Park in Chelmsford and Weston Park in Staffordshire.
