Ahead of his appearance at V Festival, Wretch 32 says, “I’m buzzing to be back at V Festival again this year. Last year was big, and I’ll be looking to top it this year by performing my new tracks to the V crowd. I will also be looking to get a little meet with Nicki Minaj…if I’m lucky!”
Soul diva and all round great personality, Beverley Knight comments,”It has been a while so I am chuffed to be back on stage at V this year. I have spent the last few years enjoying all the action as a punter. This year it’s time to do what I do best – and that’s rocking a crowd!”
We also got a comment from London trio Stooshe. They commented, “Really looking forward to V Festival this year. We attended last year so to be performing this year is amazing! The line up iswicked and it feels great to be a part of it. So excited!”
