V Festival has been a long running event in the Stafford area attracting acts and fans from around the world to our town for a busy weekend of live music and the all night party.

Since Virgin pulled out as the main sponsor for the event many fans have been worried about the future of the event here in Stafford.

The event has been replaced by Rize Festival and it will only be held at their Chelmsford site according to their website. Top acts due to play include Liam Gallagher and the Stereophonics


It’s always disappointing to see such a huge event leave us in Stafford and many people have been sharing their memories of V Festival weekends gone by with us.
