V Festival 2017 guide

The biggest names in pop descend on the UK for this massive two-site music festival

By Alexandra Gerrity

First things first: when is V Festival 2017?

It takes place at two sites (in Chelmsford and Staffordshire) over one weekend: Saturday August 19 and Sunday August 20.

Who’s on the V Festival line-up?


What’s the vibe?

After 22 years in the game V Festival know their audience, and always focus on building a line-up of the biggest anthem makers on the planet. If it’s laid-back luxury you’re after then you’ve taken a wrong turn on your way to that boutique festival in Oxfordshire, but if you want to take surreptitious iPhone shots of celebrities or scream along to chart tunes then V – with its seemingly bottomless booking budget – is hard to beat.

Anything else I should know?

V Festival goers wear their dirty fingernails and last night’s make-up with pride, but if you’re after luxury then they offer VIP ticket upgrades with ‘chill-out’ zones, a late-night bar and swanky toilets.
