Justin Bieber to be soaked at V Festival

Justin Bieber will be soaked with 800 gallons of perfectly purified water when he headlines V Festival 2016.

The 'Never Say Never' hitmaker will take to the stage on Saturday August 20 at the music extravaganza's Chelmsford venue, Hylands Park, in south east England and then travel to Weston Park, Staffordshire, West Midlands, for his headline set on Sunday August 21.

Justin's set is said to be the most challenging production the festival has ever seen in its 21-year history.

He has requested the water to be 40 degrees when it is fired at him on stage.

Rihanna will also headline the Virgin Media Stage over the August weekend, performing in Staffordshire on August 20 and Chelmsford on August 21, closing the festival in Essex.

Sia will play at the same venues and on the same dates as Justin, as will Bastille, Jess Glynne, James Morrison, Joe Jonas' pop rock band DNCE, Halsey and Mike Posner.

David Guetta will be at Weston Park on the Saturday before heading over to Hylands Park for the Sunday.

He will play on the Virgin Media Stage on the same days as Little Mix, Years & Years, Travis, All Saints, Example and Bebe Rexha.

Other performers at the festival including Tinie Tempah, John Newman, Rick Astley, Kaiser Chiefs, Jake Bugg, Tom Odell, Katy B, Fleur East, Big Sean and Lethal Bizzle, who will all be on the MTV Stage.

Festival-goers will be able to dance to DJ sets from the likes of Wilkinson and Sigma, Kurupt FM, MistaJam, My Nu Leng, Monki and Tom Zanetti & KO Kane in the Dance Arena, as well as Craig David presents TS5.

Tickets for both V Festival sites have been mainly snapped up so there are only a very limited few tickets remaining.
