Rize Festival 2018: Liam Gallagher, Stereophonics and James Bay to headline V Festival replacement
Hosting some of the globe's biggest superstars every August, musical bonanza V Fest was one of the UK's best-loved festivals for over 20 years before it was discontinued in 2017. At its peak, the festival's immense pulling power and ability to bring the world's biggest stars all to one place drew in more than 170,000 music fans; making V one of the most popular festivals on the UK calendar. The last edition featured the only European performance by Jay-Z in 2017, as well as sets from pop star Pink, garage-icon Craig David and grime master Stormzy.
After the event, founder Richard Branson announced that V Festival would be discontinued, but confirmed that a new festival would take its place. In February 2018, Rize Festival was unveiled as the newest name on the UK calendar, with Noel Gallagher and Stereophonics announced as headliners.
The inaugural Rize Festival will take place at Chelmsford’s Hylands Park – the same Essex site as V – on August 17 and 18, and will also feature the likes of Years & Years, Rag’n’Bone Man, Manic Street Preachers, Bastille, James Bay, Circa Waves and Craig David across the weekend.

V Festival's final lineup
As with every year, V Festival's initial 2017 lineup depended on the venue. Fans at Saturday's show at Weston Park were treated to Jay Z as a headliner. Supporting him were Pete Tong – presenting his Ibiza Classics backed by the incredible 60-piece orchestra Heritage Orchestra – singer Ellie Goulding, and rapper Stormzy.
On the other end, Hyland Park's Saturday lineup was just as impressive, with global superstar Pink headlining. Supporting her was the Drum 'n' Bass masters Rudimental, the evergreen Craig David and breakout singer Jess Glynne. Other artists to make an appearance included Jason Derulo, James Arthur, Clean Bandit, George Ezra, Madness, Sigma, Dizzee Rascal and a host of others.
Jay-Z and Pink's appearances were especially exciting given that both artists weren't seen on stage for a couple of years previous. While Jay-Z was busy expanding his music streaming service, Tidal, alongside an induction into the Songwriters Hall of Fame (making him the first rapper to receive the award), Pink had steered clear of the limelight since 2013, when her last album Magna Carta Holy Grail was released.
Looking to the future, it seems as though the new Rize Festival will pick up where its predecessors left off; with huge names already booked for its debut year. Don't miss out! Buy Rize Festival tickets now at StubHub.
