The organisers of V Festival have announced that both the North and South versions of the popular festival will feature a new stage for 2017. The V Street Stage Powered by Utilita Energy line-up will include British singer-songwriter Zak Abel who rose to fame on Gorgon City’s UK Top 20 hit ‘Unmissable’. Having worked with a host of big league producers from Kaytranada to Wookie, he’ll be dropping his hotly anticipated debut album ‘Only When We’re Naked’ just ahead of hitting the stage at Virgin V Festival this summer.
Brit School graduate Imani Williams stormed up the charts last year after featuring on Sigala and DJ Fresh’s track, ‘Say You Do’, having then went on to record Don’t Need No Money with house DJ’s Sigala and Blonde, making her an act not to be missed this summer.
Playing host to some of the world’s hottest talent, the V Street Stage Powered by Utilita Energy will also welcome Unsigned Music Award winner Jerry Williams. With 5 million streams on Spotify and acknowledgments from BBC Introducing, the self-producing pop songstress is a one to watch.
London lad, SLANG also joins – bringing the soulful, poetic sound of his self-titled EP to the Virgin V Festival crowds, alongside viral phenomenon NAATIONS, electro-pop sensation Alex Ross and Scottish singer songwriter Callum Beattie.
V Festival 2017 takes place in Staffordshire and Chelmsford on 19th – 20th August.
