With V Festival returning to both Staffordshire and Essex this weekend (22-23 August), celebrating its 20th anniversary. To guide you around this year’s bill, promotor Simon Moran has made Q a playlist of his personal picks.
Calvin Harris x Disciples – How Deep Is Your Love “One of the best tracks so far this year. Sure to be huge on the main stage.”
The Script – Superheroes “A real V festival favourite. It’s the fifth time the band have played for us and they never fail to deliver a stand out performance.”
Hozier - Jackie And Wilson “One of my favourite tracks from his brilliant debut album. Hopefully a future single.”
Sigma (ft Ella Henderson) – Glitterball “This is one of the songs of the Ibiza summer. Looking forward to seeing that sort of party when they play.”
Sam Smith – I’m Not The Only One “Sam Smiths set is going to be a great moment for us at V festival. This is my favourite track from his album In The Lonely Hour.”
Kasabian – Stevie “A hugely powerful live track. It’s the tour de force from the brilliant last album.”
Stereophonics – C’est la vie “A real return to form from the band. A massive song from the new album.”
Jess Glynne – Hold My Hand “One of the biggest hits this year, Im sure everyone will be singing a lot to this one.”
