Beyonce, Kings of Leon and Emeli Sande have all been confirmed as headliners at this summer's V Festival.
It will be Beyonce's only European festival performance of the year and follows her high profile return to work at the Super Bowl and President Obama's inauguration last month a year after the birth of her first child.

Festival director Simon Moran said: "With our line-up already boasting acts including Beyonce, Kings Of Leon and Emeli Sande, the 18th annual V Festival is once again set to be an unmissable weekend.
"We have a reputation for bringing fans the best world class acts and breakthrough artists, 2013 is set to be another sensational year."
Past headliners include Coldplay, Radiohead, Oasis and Arctic Monkeys.
Among the other acts confirmed for this year are Stereophonics, The Script, Calvin Harris, Beady Eye, Jessie J, Two Door Cinema Club, The Vaccines, Basement Jaxx, Olly Murs, Paloma Faith, James, Rita Ora, FUN., Labrinth, Ellie Goulding, Jessie Ware, Lianne La Havas and James Arthur.
Further acts are to be announced over the coming weeks.
