Idris Elba will make a debut festival appearance @V Festival with a hip-hop and dance DJ set.

Headlined by Beyoncé and Kings of Leon (both playing the Virgin Media Stage), V Festival takes place at Hylands Park in Essex and Weston Park in Staffordshire.

V Festival started in 1996 when Pulp singer Jarvis Cocker announced he would like to play two outdoor venues in two days.

Since then, the festival has expanded to take place across two days in both locations and feature four stages; Elba will play the Arena Stage.
