Comedians join V Festival line-up

This year's V Festival will be about more than just the music as big names such as Frankie Boyle, Russell Kane and Shappi Khorsandi have signed up to appear in The Glee Club Comedy tent.

Boyle and Kane will be headlining the comic side of things, and Kane said: "I will celebrate afterwards by heading straight to the Dance Tent, and throwing myself around to techno music like a tribal chief beating a drum."

Khorsandi said she was "excited like a kid about to jump off a 10 foot wall with her mates holding a sheet to catch her in".

When asked about the audience, she said: "I imagine the audience will be young, which is great as they can show me how to order pizza from my phone."

It's Khorsandi's second year at V Festival. Other names on the comedy bill include Seann Walsh, Nick Helm and Gary Delaney.

The music line-up for this year's festival has also been confirmed, with names such as Calvin Harris, Ellie Goulding and Sam Smith all performing.

V Festival takes place on August 22 and 23 at Hylands Park, Chelmsford and Weston Park, Staffordshire.
