Last year, Richard Branson announced the end V Festival on its website, saying 2017 was the brand’s last festival.
“V Festival has always been a special weekend for everyone at Virgin,” the statement said on Virgin’s blog.
“We’ve been proud to sponsor V Festival for the past two decades and there have been some incredible performances on the stage.
“Now, after 22 very enjoyable and successful years, 2017 was Virgin’s last V Festival.
“Being part V Festival has been an honour and there are some amazing moments that will stay with me forever – including introducing Paul Weller and welcoming V2 Records’ first signing The Stereophonics to a massive audience.
“Working on V Festival has been a brilliant journey filled with great people, fun times and exceptional music.
