The organizers of the V Festival have announced when tickets can be bought.

V will take place in it's regular homes of Hylands Park Chelmsford and Weston Park Staffordshire on 19th and 20th August.

Tickets go on sale at 9am on 3rd March, and festival fans are advised to get their tickets early to avoid disappointment. Last year's 10th Anniversary event sold out in record time and organizers are confident that tickets will sell out even faster this year.

If you've never been to V before, the Chelmsford leg always sells the quickest, with camping passes often all gone the same day it goes on sale.

V Festival director, Bob Angus comments:

"We've been working hard since last year's festival to ensure 2006 will be the best V yet. We already have some outstanding acts signed up and we're continuing to search for the finest artists around to give music fans yet another great V weekend."

V Festival organisers encourage music fans to purchase their tickets from recommended retailers only and not to buy tickets from secondary outlets or auction sites as it may lead to disappointment.

Last year the event was headlined by Oasis and Scissor Sisters, with Kaiser Chiefs, Prodigy, Embrace, Athlete and Franz Ferdinand among the other highlights.

Expect a similar line up for 2006. Keep checking R13 as we'll bring you news of who's appearing as soon as we get it.
