This summer the 11th annual V Festival, sponsored by Virgin Mobile, will be taking the music scene by storm. 80 plus acts to play across four stages, to over 135,000 fans when V returns to Hylands Park, Chelmsford and Weston Park, Staffordshire.
Virgin Mobile is really passionate about V and making it the best possible experience for festival goers. They don't believe in just putting our logo on a banner or a beer cup - they believe in giving music lovers extras that really make a difference to their festival experience. So, expect to find an army of Virgin Mobile Angels meeting festival goers with wheelbarrows to carry their tent and put it up. Look out for the winner of our Road to V competition opening the Festival.
