V2008: Muse to headline


Story by Jack Foley

MUSE have been named as the first headline act of this summer’s V Festival (2008).

The popular music event takes place on August 16 and 17 at Hylands Park, Chelmsford and Weston Park, Stafford and will mark Muse’s only European festival appearances of the year.

The band are widely considered to be one of the very best live acts around and have picked up numerous awards (including a Brit) in the best live band categories at several prestigious ceremonies.

And their headline slot at last year’s Isle of Wight festival was hailed as one of the highlights of the weekend. Two nights at Wembley were also well received.

There are plans to release a live album and DVD of the Wembley event later this year.

Tickets for this year’s V Festival go on sale on March 7 and further acts will be announced soon.

JUST ANNOUNCED: Amy Winehouse, The Verve and Kaiser Chiefs have been added to this year’s line-up. Read more
