ORGANISERS have revealed when the first V Festival 2013 line-up announcement will be made.
The popular Virgin Media sponsored music festival returns to Hylands Park in Essex and Weston Park, Staffordshire, over the weekend of Saturday, August 17 and Sunday, August 18.
And festival-goers now know the date when the first acts on the V2013 bill will be announced.
Oscar Tuttiett, a promoter at joint festival organisers Metropolis Music, tweeted earlier today (Tuesday): “I can confirm the initial lineup announcement for @vfestival 2013 will happen on Monday 25th February! One for your diaries!”
That message was retweeted by the official V Festival Twitter account @vfestival.
Manchester indie legends The Stone Roses and American rockers The Killers headlined V 2012 this summer.
Both bands have since been confirmed as headliners for next year’s Isle of Wight Festival, along with Bon Jovi.
The Killers have also been announced for T in the Park 2013 in Scotland, with Rihanna and Mumford & Sons the other main stage headliners.
American rapper Eminem, who played V in 2011 along with Love The Way You Lie partner-in-crime Rihanna, will headline the Reading and Leeds Festival next summer.
