With more to be announced during the coming months, the first set of V headliners confirms the diversity that is the trademark of V. "Tickets will become publicly available from Monday 4 December, however V Festival fans will not get their event tickets in hand until early March. In an effort to ensure that tickets reach the hands of real fans (rather than those hoping to resell at inflated prices) we will be issuing every customer with a receipt as proof of purchase when they buy, and mailing tickets to their nominated address prior to the Festival. "We will also release a limited 'last minute' allocation of tickets 3 weeks before the Festival date so that the market is flooded with tickets at the V Festival price."
