Nick Jonas to perform at V Festival

Nick Jonas will perform at V Festival.

The 'Jealous' hitmaker joins hip hop trio De La Soul, Pendulum and MNEK in the latest list of acts confirmed for the 20th anniversary event which is sponsored by Virgin Media and takes place across the weekend of August 22 and 23 in Hylands Park, Chelmsford and Weston Park, Staffordshire.

The 22-year-old singer confessed he felt "honoured" to have been added to the star-studded lineup, whose headliners include Calvin Harris, Kasabian, Sam Smith, Stereophonics and Ellie Goulding.

He said: "I'm honoured to join such an incredible line up at the 20th anniversary of V Festival.

"My fans have been very supportive of my new music so I'm really excited to perform for them at one of the UK's greatest festivals."

De La Soul's Kelvin Mercer is also looking forward to performing in front of one of the "craziest crowds".

He said: "Every time we perform in the UK we get the best reception, from the craziest crowds! V Festival 2015 is going to be the biggest rave of the year, so we're looking forward to being on that stage and joining the party!"

Grammy-nominated MNEK added: "This year has been a whirlwind and it's not over yet. I'm so chuffed to be part of such a brilliant line-up and can't wait to get out there."

Other acts scheduled to perform include The Script, Paloma Faith, Olly Murs, Ella Henderson, Kodaline, Nero, The Kooks, Marina & The Diamonds and George Ezra.

The music acts will play alongside a hilarious mix of comedy headliners including Russell Kane, Frankie Boyle, Shappi Khorsandi and Matt Richardson, who will all take centre stage in the Glee Club Comedy Tent across the weekend.
