JUST UPDATED: Organisers have confirmed three more acts for the NME stage at this year's V Festival, providing music fans with an unbeatable line up that veritably rocks. Oklahoma's most irresistible musical export, The All American Rejects, Dublin four-piece, Hal and New York ambassadors of pop-rock, Fountains of Wayne, will be joining other NME favourites on the stage

Beverley Knight and Chicane are the most recent additions to the V Festival line up, joining an unprecedented and eclectic mix of the best in live music this year. Beverley Knight is set to unleash her trademark soul-filled vocals on crowds at V this summer alongside 35 already confirmed acts including headliners The Strokes, Dido, Muse and Pixies.  Beverley’s appearance at V promises to cement her reign as the UK’s First Lady of Soul.  

Reflecting the diverse nature of the V Festival 2004 line up, Chicane are also set to provide one of their renowned live performances, proving that they really are amongst the UK’s masters of dance music. The latest additions to V’s line up, Beverley Knight and Chicane will take to the JJB/Puma stage at the ninth annual V Festival taking place simultaneously at Hylands Park, Chelmsford and Weston Park, Staffordshire on 21st and 22nd August 2004. 

 V Festival Director Bob Angus Comments:

“This year’s V line up covers a wide cross section of musical genres and really is one our best yet, so tickets are really selling fast.  Music fans won’t be disappointed – Beverley played at V in 2002 and really wowed the crowd - they’re in for an experience set to go down in festival history!”
