What Is V Festival?

The V Festival is a yearly music festival held on the last weekend of August in England. This is one of the the few musical events that is celebrated simultaneously in two places: It is held at Hyland Park in Chelmsford near London and Weston Park in South Staffordshire near Manchester sharing the same bill. Artists usually perform at one location on Saturday and then go to the other stage the next day.
A wide range of musical genre is played and performed in V Festival's stages, although it is leans towards rock music. Pop acts, however, have recently become common. British and international artists are welcome to perform in its stages.
“V” in V Festival represents the Virgin Group which, together with Virgin Media, Channel 4 and 4 Music, sponsors the festival. The event was first staged in 1996 when Jarvis Cocker, Pulp’s main man announced that he would love to play two outdoor venues in two days. Promoters responded by scheduling gigs for Pulp in Victoria Park, Warrington and Hylands Park, Chelmsfold. This gave music fans from both north and south of England a chance to see the band. After that, the idea of putting more bands to the bill on a second stage appeared, with people camping in for the weekend. The V Festival's venues had been changed a few times since it was first staged.
Since 2003, the V Festival has been consistently a well-attended festival due mostly to weekend format, short length of queuing times and professional organization. Since 2006, it has been selling out tickers in shorter and shorter periods of time.
