V was the first UK festival to operate over two days and swap line-ups overnight. Since 96, some of the world’s greatest performers have graced the stages including Radiohead, Morrissey, The Strokes, Coldplay, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Blur, Faithless, Razorlight and Kylie…
V It began from an idea shared by Jarvis Cocker who mentioned that he wanted to play two outdoor gigs in two days - the right folk got together and hey presto V was born. Beginning in 1996 V was the first festival to operate a two site option and the first year had a Warrington leg before moving to Temple Newsam in Leeds for the next two years - in 1999 Weston Park became the new home for the V festival in the North where it has since remained and firmly established itself as a festival to be reckoned with.
The Weston Park leg tends to attract less of the celeb set - if you prefer celeb city and enjoy the chance to bump into someone famous then Chelmsford is the one for you - and maybe that's one of V festivals greatest strengths - although they have the same line up both festivals have a very different feel so you have a choice for which one suits you best. Whichever one you do choose for this large corporate event you'll have a great time because the line up will be good, crowd pleasing favourites.
