V Festival 2007: weather update

Macs or sun hats at Chelmsford and Stafford this weekend?

According to the latest forecasts, this weekend’s (August 18, 19) V Festival will be damp one, but hopefully not a total washout.

It is currently predicted that it will rain at both sites, with the Weston Park in Stafford looking at showers on both Saturday and Sunday, although there will be some sunny periods.

Chelmsford’s Hylands Park is looking better, with a dry first day (18), before the rain arrives on Sunday (19).

NME.COM will be bringing you news, reviews and pictures live from both sites throughout the event. Check out or main festival index now.
