Rihanna joins V Festival line-up

Rihanna has been added to the bill for this year's V Festival.

The Barbados-born chart star, who has sold more than 25 million records worldwide, will join headliners Eminem and Arctic Monkeys at the event which runs across two days on two sites in Essex and Staffordshire.

Also confirmed as playing on August 20 and 21 are Plan B, Dizzee Rascal, Irish rockers The Script, Kaiser Chiefs, Duran Duran and Tinie Tempah.

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."

The festival, which is in its 16th year, is run across Hylands Park, Chelmsford, and Weston Park in Staffordshire. Also playing are Manic Street Preachers, Scouting For Girls, N-Dubz, Hurts, Ellie Goulding, Squeeze and The Saturdays.

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's fantastic to be able to introduce V Style this year. We hope that the lure of luxury camping will add that little extra something for music fans who love live performances and a festival atmosphere, but aren't always as keen on roughing it."

Tickets, which start at £83.50 and go up to £175, go on sale at 9am on Friday.
