Festival Director Bob Angus commented: “We’re very proud to be presenting Radiohead, one of the most important bands in live music today, as headliners for this year’s V. To secure Morrissey, a man that has influenced so many great artists, as the other main stage headliner ensures yet another excellent V line up. It’s acts like these that give our festival its unique eclectic feel and keeps our audience coming back for more, we are expecting tickets will fly out!”

Tickets go on sale at 9am this coming Friday (3rd March). Tickets are priced at £120 for both days with camping, £100 for both days with no camping, or £58.50 for either day, and £40 for campervans. We'll have links to buy when tickets are on sale - they're expected to sell out extremely quickly on Friday, quite possibly in less than one hour.
