Mark Ronson confirmed for V Festival
Mark Ronson has been added to the V Festival line-up.
The 'Uptown Funk' hitmaker will headline the annual event's Our House stage alongside iconic DJ A-Trak, with the duo teaming up for an exclusive set on Sunday August 23 in Chelmsford, Essex.
Mark Ronson said: "I became a DJ because I fell in love with hip-hop, while growing up in New York and listening to all the legendary NY DJ's, like Red Alert, Funk Flex & Stretch Armstrong. I wanted to bring a taste of that musical heritage to V Festival this year. I cannot wait to perform on Virgin Media's Our House stage with my homeboy A-Trak - it's going to be LIVE! (sic)"
The stage - which is inspired by old school block parties - will also feature drum 'n' bass stars DJ Goldie and MC GQ, as well as 'That's Not Me' rapper Skepta and a selection of other famous faces.
While Mark and A-Trak will perform at the event in Essex, Jungle will provide an exclusive headline DJ set for the crowds at V Festival Staffordshire on the same evening.
For music fans who can't be there, Mark's show will be live-streamed from the festival on Virgin Media's YouTube channel, while the telecommunications company will also provide free WiFi across the festival sites.
V Festival takes places at Hylands Park in Chelmsford, Essex, and Weston Park in Staffordshire from August 22 - 23 2015.
