Example will be doing something a little bit different, inviting DJ Wire into the performance, and this year marks another round for the rapper after his appearance at last year's V event. 'I can't wait to return to V Festival, the crowds never disappoint', he insists. 'A lot of people will be used to my shows with the live band behind me, but this time I'll be bringing DJ Wire as I want to put on a unique rave with a twist. I've been lucky enough to perform at festivals all over the world but there's always something special about V Festival - it feels like my home turf.'

'I'm so excited to be performing at V Festival for the first time, it's going to be great fun!' He said. 'It has definitely been tough trying to contain myself, sitting on my hands waiting to get out there with new material, so I can't wait to finally share my music with everyone... bring it on!!!'

Ahead of the release of his second album 'Innerstanding', Hackney soul singer Maverick Sabre is also announced. 'It's been a busy year and what better way to celebrate than playing at one of the best festivals in the UK', he gushed.
