More top acts announced as the festival season hots up...

Underworld, Groove Armada, Beth Orton and SEMISONIC are the latest names to be added to the line-up of this year’s V2000 festival bill.

Underworld, who release a live album on September 4 through V2, will headline the JJB Arena, which is the main dance arena at both sites.

On March 28, nme.com predicted that Underworld would headline the dance tent at one of this summer’s festivals, as well as playing a large outdoor show in Ibiza.

Groove Armada, Semisonic and Beth Orton have also been added to the bill, although it is yet to be confirmed on which day each band will play.

Groove Armada are currently planning their new album, which they hope to record in Brazil and release before the end of the year.

All four have been added to a bill which includes headliners Richard Ashcroft and Travis. Other recent additions to the ever expanding line-up include Kelis, Macy Gray, Paul Weller, Moby and Supergrass.

V2000 takes place this year at Weston Park, Staffordshire and Hylands Park, Chelmsford over the weekend of August 19-20. Tickets are priced #66 for the weekend, and #76 for the weekend including camping.
