V Festival, sponsored by Virgin Media, is proud to announce the addition of legendary hip-hop pioneers, De La Soul to its 20th anniversary line-up.

Pendulum (DJ set), MNEK, The Coronas, Conor Maynard, Shift K3Y, Sinead Harnett, Seafret, Zac Samuel, James Glover and Nick Jonas, will complete the line-up of the summer.
Over 150,000 fans will get the chance to see the newly announced acts perform across the weekend, as they join Calvin Harris, Kasabian, Sam Smith, The Script, Stereophonics, Ellie Goulding and Spotify’s most sought-after names of 2015, George Ezra, James Bay and Hozier.
De La Soul’s Kelvin Mercer said: “Every time we perform in the UK we get the best reception, from the craziest crowds! V Festival 2015 is going to be the biggest rave of the year, so we’re looking forward to being on that stage and joining the party!”
Grammy-nominated MNEK said: “This year has been a whirlwind and it’s not over yet. I’m so chuffed to be part of such a brilliant line-up and can’t wait to get out there.”
Nick Jonas commented: “I'm honoured to join such an incredible line up at the 20th anniversary of V Festival. My fans have been very supportive of my new music so I'm really excited to perform for them at one of the UK’s greatest festivals.”
The hottest names in music will be performing alongside hilarious comedy headliners including Russell Kane, Frankie Boyle, Shappi Khorsandi and Matt Richardson, who will all take centre stage in the Glee Club Comedy Tent.
