Festival Directors Bob Angus, Simon Moran and Dennis Desmond said: "We’ve worked hard to bring fans an exciting and diverse line-up, securing Beyonce for an exclusive European Festival appearance and Kings of Leon as headliners is a great achievement.
"These acts along with one of the strongest bills in V Festival's 18-year history is something we are very proud of. We have a reputation for bringing fans the best world class acts and breakthrough artists, 2013 is set to be another sensational year.”
Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday, March 1st, and punters are advised to head to www.vfestival.com to find the official outlets.
