Goldie Lookin’ Chain comments: “This year we want to fulfil a lifetime’s dream, getting a live jam together on stage with the one and only Fun Lovin’ Criminals. Imagine the ultimate combination of modestly priced leisurewear rocking out side by side with some of the slickest formal wear in the music industry.”
Gomez comments: “Gomez rocks, V rocks, let’s rock all together”
Frankmusik comments: “I am so glad to be back in the UK playing one of the most exciting festivals of the year, a real treat!”
Chromeo comments: “Last time we played V, nobody knew who we were, it was only a DJ gig and we were actually schlepping crates of vinyl. Needless to say, we’re thrilled to finally be back in full funkateer mode. This shall be terrific.”
Morcheeba comments: “We are so happy to be playing the V Festival again in 2011, we always have a blast. I am excited to see all the other bands and explore the site. UK festivals are the best in the world and crowds are the noisiest!”
Emma’s Imagination comments: “Really looking forward to playing V, it’s my first year playing the big festivals so I’m totally buzzing! The line up looks amazing this year and I’m so glad to be a part of it. See you there!”
Nigel Gilbert, Chief Marketing Officer for Virgin Media added:
“Undercover From Virgin Media brings music lovers an eclectic mix of established names, as well as the best in new and emerging talent. We’re proud to support one of the UK’s finest live music events and look forward to some of the Undercover acts headlining at future V Festivals.”
