North American exports Rihanna and Justin Bieber will head across the pond to headline the 21st edition of the UK’s V Festival. The dual location fest between Chelmsford and Staffordshire will also include Sia, Bastille, David Guetta, Kaiser Chiefs, Faithless, Years & Years, and Tinie Tempah.
We’re curious to see how this lineup pans out. Rihanna is a solid bet for a festival headliner but Bieber is certainly a polarizing pick as evidenced by the 10,000+ and counting comments on the official V Festival Facebook page. Reactions are skewing towards the negative but then again we all know that only old people use Facebook to shout at clouds so maybe the youngsters on Snapchat are stoked about this.
Tickets are on sale February 26 (this Friday) and will run you around £189 plus booking fee with camping.
