Following Kasabian and Calvin Harris’ breathtaking headline slots earlier this evening, V Festival organisers have announced plans for next year’s event, as the annual soiree looks to celebrate its 21st birthday.

Once again sponsored by Virgin Media, tickets for V Festival 2016 will go on limited pre-sale later this week, giving fans £21 off each of the two days of a weekend ticket.

Whilst performers are yet to be announced (give V Fest a chance – this year’s one has only just finished!), you can be sure that #V21st will be celebrating in style! Be quick though, the limited discount will only be available for three weeks (21 days)!

V Festival Director Bob Angus said of next year’s bash: “V Festival has been a landmark on the British summer calendar for two decades and year on year fans keep coming back for more. We’ve built a reputation of offering the best of the global music scene, with both established and emerging acts and we’re planning to pull out all the stops for our 21st birthday next year.”

V Festival 2016 will once again grace the event’s two homes at Hylands Park, Chelmsford and Weston Park, Staffordshire, with the fun covering the weekend of 20th & 21st August. Limited-edition ticket-presale will commence this Friday (28th August) at 9:21am (geddit!) over at Ticketmaster. Head over here for more info!
