Early bird tickets for next summer’s V Festival go on sale this morning from 9am for a limited period of time at 2012 prices.

During this period, tickets will be priced at £180 for a weekend pass with camping, £155 weekend pass without camping and £86 for day tickets, plus booking fees.

Tickets are limited to eight per person. So music fans are urged to be quick to snap up weekend passes to the twin-site festival taking place at Hylands Park near Chelmsford, Essex, and Weston Park in Staffordshire over the weekend of August 17-18.

However, no 2013 V headliners have been confirmed yet by organisers and no line-up details have been announced.

Festival-goers can also book luxury camping tickets through V Style and coach packages at 2012 prices.

As always, festival organisers are urging fans to only use official ticket channels when buying tickets and not to purchase tickets from unofficial or secondary outlets.

Visit www.vfestival.com for details of all official ticket outlets.

The Stone Roses and The Killers headlined last weekend’s V Festival, sponsored by Virgin Media, with performances that had both Chelmsford and Staffordshire rocking.

At the Essex leg, chart-topping rapper Tinie Tempah got the Virgin Media stage crowd jumping on the Sunday with performances of Pass Out and Frisky.

While Snow Patrol followed shortly after with spectacular performance of their hits Chasing Cars and Run as the sun went down over the main stage.

Festival-goers at Hylands Park basked in a second day of glorious sunshine as Lawson performed Maroon 5’s Move Like Jagger, while The Voice breakout star Bo Bruce serenaded the crowds with a rendition of U2’s With or Without You.

Essex’s own Olly Murs also surprised fans with a special rendition of It Must Be Love when he joined his heroes, those Nutty Boys Madness, on stage.
