With V Festival this year hosting an eclectic mix of singers and hit-makers of the moment for its 20th anniversary year later this month, we've put together a list of 10 mist-see acts for all those going to the big event.


Iconic in the industry, the rockers are going to headline the Virgin Media Stage with a show that will surely not disappoint.

Calvin Harris

Could Taylor Swift make an appearance in Calvin's set? The two are currently collaborating on a secret project in the studio - whether or not it happens, Calvin's set will be one of the most recognisable.

Sam Smith

Winning 21 awards in the past two years alone, Sam is one of the most talented vocalists to ever come out of the UK, and with this being his last scheduled performance in the country this year, fans are sure to flock to get one last 2015 glimpse of the star.

James Bay

This Grammy Award winner may have only recently really kicked his career into high gear, but he's already managing to win the hearts of people all around the globe.


With four top ten albums and seven years worth of career behind them, Mancunian four-piece the Courteeners recently sold 25,000 tickets in 39 minutes at Heaton Park, in a week that also saw all four of their albums re-enter the iTunes top 20 album chart. They're a captivating bunch and should put on one of the best performances of the weekend.

Olly Murs

Taking a break from filming The X Factor over the weekend, Olly will be back once more to own the stage and put on an energetic show for his legions of fans.

Paloma Faith

Winning Best British Female this year at the BRIT Awards, Paloma knows how to put on an incredible performance with her out of this world vocals and fantastic sense of fashion.

Clean Bandit

As one of the most exciting new acts to come from the last few years, the group should put on a unique and exciting set to celebrate their incredible award wins and achievements to-date.

Mark Ronson

During Ronson's DJ set, fans will be clambering to see just who joins Mark on-stage, with the producer being part of some of the biggest collaborations of the last ten years.

Tom Jones

Despite being axed from The Voice, Tom should put on one of the standout shows of the weekend as one of the most famous vocalists to come from the 60s, with a huge 36 top 40 hits under his belt.

V Festival takes place this coming weekend at West Park and Hylands Park over Saturday August 22 to Sunday August 23.
