There's good news for anyone who missed out on tickets for V98 in Chelmsford next month. Though the event - which takes place on 22 and 23 Aug and boasts headlining sets from both The Verve and The Charlatans - is sold out, one of its sponsors, Tommy Jeans, has given us a pair of VIP tickets for the whole festival to give away. Also featuring in this year's line-up at Hylands Park are Seahorses, Texas, Green Day, Space, Iggy Pop, Robbie Williams, James and Chumbawamba. Tommy Jeans's role at V98 includes sponsoring a celebrity five-a-side football match, starring Bob Mortimer, Keith Allen, Dodgy and Goldie, and giving each V98 artist a Tommy Jeans goody bag containing a pair of jeans, a Tommy T-shirt and an exclusively designed Tommy bag.
