THE latest V Festival 2013 stage line-ups have been announced for the popular music event.

The two-day rock, indie, grime, dance and pop extravaganza takes place at Hylands Park, Chelmsford, and Weston Park, Staffordshire, from Saturday, August 17 to Sunday, August 18.

The campsite at Hylands Park will open at noon on Friday, August 16 and close on Monday, August 19 at noon.

Weston Park campsites open at 9am on Friday, August 16 and close on Monday, August 19 at noon.

The arena itself will open at noon on both Saturday and Sunday.

The main Virgin Media Stage will be headlined by Crazy in Love singer Beyonce at Hylands Park on the opening night, and then Sex on Fire rockers Kings of Leon on the Sunday.

The two headliners will play the Staffordshire site on the opposite days to Essex.

Band stage times have not been released by organisers.

Set times will be available with the official V Festival programme, coming in the form of a lanyard that festival-goers can hang around their necks.

But, going on previous V Festivals at Hylands Park, the headliners will take to the main stage sometime between 9pm and 9.30pm, with their set finishing before the 11pm curfew.

Beady Eye were due to top the second stage at Hylands Park on the Saturday, and Weston Park on the Sunday, but have had to cancel their appearance due to a head injury to guitarist Gem Archer.

Their slot has been taken by Swedish House Mafia DJ Steve Angello, who has been bumped up from the Arena Stage.

Record-breaking Scottish dance music star Calvin Harris will be the Sunday headliner of the Essex leg of the twin-site festival.

The Arena Stage will now feature headline performances over the two days by Ocean Colour Scene and Basement Jaxx, with former Welwyn Garden City man Jaguar Skills also appearing in the tent.

Benjamin Francis Leftwich and Jamie Cullum are the respective scheduled headliners of the new Futures Stage.
