Justin Timberlake and the Killers are set to headline V Festival 2014.
Timberlake, who headlined Wireless festival in London last year, has never played the event before. Last year he released his third album, The 20/20 Experience, his first since 2006’s FutureSex/LoveSounds.
As for the Killers, this will be the third time the Las Vegas band have headlined V. They topped the bill in 2009 and 2012.
Neither Timberlake nor the Killers will be playing any other UK summer festival dates.
The festival line-up boasts plenty of other big names, including Ed Sheeran, Lily Allen and Elbow. Rudimental, Sam Smith and the Human League, who play the festival for the fourth time, also feature among the more notable performers. Chic featuring Nile Rodgers will play as special guests, with more names yet to be announced.
V 2014 will take place on August 16 and 17, this year at two locations: Hylands Park, Chelmsford and Weston Park, Staffordshire. Tickets go on sale at vfestival.com on Friday, March 7, at 9am.
