V Festival Chelmsford
Richard Branson's contribution to Britain's busy summer music festival schedule offers many of the biggest live acts from around the world. The festival is noted for its professionalism and low queuing times, ensuring its sold-out status every year. Like the Carling festivals, this one has a sibling festival too (with acts playing on alternate days), held in Weston Park, Staffordshire.
Venue: Hylands Park, Chelmsford, Essex
Date: 18 - 19 August 2012
