Preview: V Festival 2010

 
By on Thursday, 25th March 2010 at 12:00 pm
 

We like a good festival here at There Goes the Fear, and as those anticipated summer months swiftly approach, we’re going to start having a nosey round at some upcoming music events across Blighty this 2010. So, to kick things off, grab your wellies, we’re heading off to V Festival!

All the action will be taking place across the weekend of Saturday 21st to Sunday 22nd of August, at two major sites – Hylands Park in Chelmsford, Essex, and Weston Park, Staffordshire. Tickets for this year event sold out in record time – proof of the wide appeal of this varied festival.

As expected, the bosses at Virgin are serving up quite a commercial line up this year. While the two headliners, Kasabian and Kings of Leon, are certainly worth forking out for, how about the rest of the acts?

Well, erm, if Cheryl Cole, Chipmunk, Pixie Lott, Sugababes, Mika, Paloma Faith, Scouting for Girls and Paolo Nutini float your boat, then certainly, this fest is for you. However, if that’s not your kind of thing – never fear! There are some artists across the weekend set to salvage the festival from the prying hands of pop.

Kinda…

That husky voiced lot Stereophonics (pictured right) are the act on prior to Kings of Leon taking to the stage, as well as aging mod Paul Weller. Kasabian, meanwhile, will be following rave maestros, Faithless, and curly-haired indie kids, The Kooks.

Other acts appearing on the main stage at V include Editors, Madness, The Courteeners, Passion Pit and Skunk Anasie. Yay…

Headling the 4 Music stage this August is David Guetta and The Prodigy (who seem to have an inability to NOT appear at some sort of festival). Other acts appearing include Florence and the Machine, Calvin Harris, White Lies and The Temper Trap.

Meanwhile, The Arena shall be boasting of Pet Shop Boys, Groove Armada, Goldfrapp, La Roux, The Charlatans, Ellie Goulding and Imogen Heap. So at last we can all breath a sigh of relief that there is some decent music at this year’s V.

To conclude – while this festival may not be for musical purists out there, if you’re looking for a fun weekend out, V Festival will certainly prove a jolly good weekend.

Tickets have now sold out for the event, erm, not that I’m sure you mind after reading this, however.
