Channel 5 and MTV UK struck a deal yesterday to become the official broadcast partners of V Festival.

Channel 5 will be broadcasting live packages of some performance acts over the weekend, while MTV UK will air live highlights from the MTV stage and main stage across its various channels.

It’s the first time, Channel 5 will aired the festival, though MTV UK has done so twice before.

V Festival will take place in Hylands Park, Chelmsford, and Weston Park, Staffordshire, on 20-21 August, and is expected to attract around 340,000 festival-goers.
