Lawson - Lawson and Idris Elba added to V Festival line up

Lawson and Idris Elba have joined the Virgin Media V Festival line up.

The 'Taking Over Me' hitmakers will perform hits including their top 10 tune 'Brokenhearted' at the music extravaganza, which takes place across two sites, Weston Park, Staffordshire and Hylands Park, Chelmsford, on August 17 and 18.

The 'Luther' star, who is also a critically acclaimed musician, will make his debut festival appearance with some hip hop and dance tunes, and he is joined on the line-up by fellow newly-announced acts John Newman, Naughty Boy and Seasick Steve.

British signer John will inject some soulful songs to the festival, which Beyonce and Kings of Leon will headline, while Seasick Steve will make his second appearance at the event with his brand of blues/rock.

Other acts confirmed to play at the event include Stereophonics, The Script, Emeli Sande, Calvin Harris, Beady Eye, Jessie J, Rita Ora, Labrinth, Ellie Goulding, Little Mix and Jessie Ware.

What's more, Dynamo is set to perform his next incredible stunt at Virgin Media's Louder Lounge area by teaming up with a group of free runners.

A Virgin Media Louder Lounge source recently claimed: ''The skilled dare devil is currently training with a troop of free runners and one of the Louder Lounge tents has a secret compartment. We can't imagine what he is planning for his next jaw dropping stunt.''

There are a limited amount of V Festival tickets still available at www.vfestival.com
