For those harbouring suspicions that Calvin Harris and Sam Sparro are one and the same person, there are signs that the dilemma could be resolved this summer as V Festival look to get them both into the same room, at the same time.
Elsewhere, chart-topping trans-Atlantic tramp Estelle* has also been confirmed for the event, as well as Captain and *The Presets. Actually we don’t think Estelle’s a tramp. We’d take her over any of these other acts in a heartbeat.
Just so you know, like – V runs over the 16th and 17th of August at twin sites in Chelmsford and Staffordshire. Ticket details are here.
One thing you do have to give to V is that at least its exclusivity contracts prevent the bands it books from playing other festivals, (or just Reading/Leeds). Like a massive shit magnet.
