Rihanna, The Wanted, The Saturdays, Ellie Goulding and Duran Duran performed at V Festival in the Midlands on August 20th and 21st 2011
Eminem and Arctic Monkeys headlined this year's V Festival at Weston Park in Staffordshire, joined by the likes of Plan B, The Script, Kaiser Chiefs, and Ollie Murs.
The Script's Danny O'Donoghue said: "V Festival was our first ever UK show three years ago. It was a baptism of fire but we survived it. We love to play V; it's a real party for both festival-goers and bands. We can't wait for it."
It was the 16th anniversary and Festival Director Bob Angus said: "The breadth of accomplished talent performing throughout the weekend on the other stages is also something that we are very proud of with heavyweight acts including Dizzee Rascal, Razorlight, Chase and Status and Duran Duran joining the party."
Organisers said they were trying to make the festival more luxurious this year by setting up ready-built yurts and pop-up hotel rooms for accommodation.
Festival Director Simon Moran said: "It was fantastic to be able to introduce V Style this year and hoped that the lure of luxury camping will add that little extra something to music fans who love live performances and a festival atmosphere, but aren't always as keen on roughing it."
