V Festival 2010 Staffordshire

90,000 people will need their wellies and waterproofs as they flock to Weston Park each day for V Festival 2010, including 75,000 campers! This is the 15th year that the Festival has been running, and this time around it sold out in record time, taking only an hour and a half for all the tickets to be snapped up.

Cheryl Cole stole the headlines as she was due to perform, but has unfortunately had to cancel on Doctors orders, after picking up Malaria whilst on a recent holiday in Tanzania. Girls Aloud and X-Factor star Cheryl is now recovering in LA.

The festival showcases an exciting line up, including:

Paolo Nutini, Pixie Lott, Madness, Plan B, Mika, The Sugarbabes, The Pet Shop Boys, Diana Vickers, Kings of Leon, Ellie Goulding, The Stereophonics and Peter Andre.
