V Festival

UK V Festival Goes Over Big


By: Spacelab Research Staff
Over 130,000 people descended on Staffordshire and Essex this weekend for this year's British edition of the V Festival. Radiohead and Morrissey were the headliners, while other big names included Beck, Kasabian, Paul Weller, Groove Armada, Bloc Party, The Charlatans, and The Go! Team.

Bloc Party played the song Waiting For The 7.15 from their upcoming album while saying it was "...the biggest crowd we've played in front of in the UK."

Morissey closed out the first day by throwing in some songs from his former bands the Smiths, including Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before and Girlfriend In A Coma.

Beck did covers of Radiohead's Creep and the Flaming Lips' Do You Realize during his hour long set.

The V Festival happens in two cites -- it's a two day festival, with 4 stages, 80 bands, and they all bounce back and forth to both locations playing once in each city.

V Festival organizers are even set to put tickets on sale for next years V Festival this week, saying "Despite some inclement weather the spirits of our festival goers wasn't dampened and everyone's having a fantastic time. It's great we are now in a position whereby we can sell tickets to dedicated music lovers without a line up announcement."
