Tuesday March 4, 2014

Justin Timberlake and The Killers are scheduled to headline this year’s V Festival in Essex and Staffordshire, it was announced on Monday.

Last year Justin performed at Wireless in London, and this year he is ready for another UK festival headline slot.

The US superstar released his third album last year called The 20/20 Experience, which was his first since 2006´s FutureSex/LoveSounds. It will be Justin’s first time playing at the event.

For the Las Vegas Band, The Killers, it will be the third time headlining for the popular festival.

The line-up boasts plenty of other big names, including Ed Sheeran, Lily Allen, Bastille and Chase and Status.

V Festival director Bob Angus said: "We have pulled together a line-up of huge depth with a variety of artists across many musical genres and 2014 is set to be another fantastic year in V Festival's 19-year history."

About 170,000 people are expected to attend throughout the two day duration of the event. V Festival 2014 will take place on 16 and 17 August and tickets go on sale Friday 7 March at 9am.
