Justin Timberlake, The Killers, Ed Sheeran and The Killers are just some of the names confirmed for this year’s V Festival, organisers have confirmed.

The announcement, made moments ago on the festival’s official Twitter feed, also sees Paolo Nutini, Lily Allen, Rudimental, Kaiser Chiefs and more join the bill, for the 16/17th August event.

V Festival Directors Bob Angus, Simon Moran and Dennis Desmond commented: “We’re very excited to announce the V Festival line-up, and proud to bring headliners Justin Timberlake and The Killers, following on from their sold out Wembley Stadium show in 2013, with both headliners summer festival exclusives. We have pulled together a line-up of huge depth with a variety of artists across many musical genres and 2014 is set to be another fantastic year in V Festival’s 19 year history.”

Simon Moran added: “I am looking forward to seeing so many artists this year but I am personally very much looking forward to seeing a great performance from Chic with Nile Rodgers!”

Many more acts will be announced in the coming weeks across 4 stages.
