V Festival 2013

Live Stream, Lineup, Tickets, Schedule

Hylands Park / Weston Park 17-18 August

 

V festival

The V festival is another of the growing trend of dual location events, in the manner of the sister events in Reading and Leeds, sharing the same lineup over 2 venues at Hylands Park in Chelmsford, Essex and Weston Park, Staffordshire to maximise both the available audience and, of course, the potential revenue.

The V Festival first took place back in 1996 and takes it's name from primary sponsor Virgin, who provided the backing for an event that was actually originally the brainchild of Pulp frontman and noted hipster Jarvis Cocker, who it seems just liked the idea of playing in 2 different outdoor venues on consecutive days. The rest, as they say, is history.

As the name and associated links suggests the V festival is somewhat more commercial in nature than many older, more traditional festivals and has attracted some criticism for this, not least the high prices charged on site, but that does seem to be the way the festival industry is moving these days, so I'm guessing that as long as they keep providing top acts in their lineup they'll continue to sell out their tickets and enjoy success.

Streaming & Video

 

The V Festival has had a good range of streaming coverage in previous years, both online and on the television (most recently on Channel 4 and the 4 Music channel).

Channel 4 is covering the festival this year, with live coverage from 4pm, and full day highlights shortly after midnight - you can watch online here:

It isn't always the most reliable stream though, so if that one isn't working for you, you can give this one a try:

There are also highlights on 4Music from 7pm:
