Last Years Review - Vfestival will be turning 21 this year. Probably one of most popular festivals, popular being the operative word, with acts including Justin Beiber and Rhianna ensuring tickets sell like hotcakes, they will perform UK exclusives at the festival this summer. But maybe having to pay for Justin Beiber, means the depth in quality rock acts is lacking compared with previous years, or a change in music direction for the festival. Especially when you consider Rick Astley is playing high up in the bill.
Whether Faithless, Kaiser Chiefs, Bastille, Years & Years, Tine Tempah, Craig David and Big Sean will also float the same boat for Justin Beiber or Rhianna fans and visa versa, is yet to be seen. Some great acts like Jake Bugg and legendary Soul II Soul definantly deserve more of a mention and attention. The split format, like Reading and Leeds, The Vfestival is held in two parks, over the same weekend Weston park, North Staffordshire and Hylands Park, Chelmsford. Artists play at both locations on different days. It was on the NME shortlist for best festival of 2015, though Glastonbury was the eventual winner.
Don't fancy getting back to nature with traditional camping, then the choice in alternative accommodation seems endless. From Yurts to Tipi Tents. Huts to Bedouin Tents. Trailer Vans (Jetstream) to just tents.
