The Fratellis have been confirmed on the bill of this year’s V Festival. Held annually in the United Kingdom, the festival takes place at two parks simultaneously and share the same bill – those parks being Hylands Park in Chelmsford and Weston Park in South Staffordshire. Bands and artists perform at one location on Saturday and then swap on Sunday.
Set to take place August 17 and August 18, the festival dates will come a few months after the band’s UK tour in April.
Tickets are on sale now and the best deals on all V Festival tickets can be found right here at SeatGeek.

Scottish rockers The Fratellis are gearing up for a stint across the United Kingdom, slated for April of next year. The tour comes after the announcement that the band has returned from their two-year hiatus, and are currently recording a follow-up album to 2008’s Here We Stand. Of the new record, front-end Jon Fratelli has said, “We’ve not changed in any way that is going to challenge people too much… You do enough to keep them motivated and interested.” Considering their last effort peaked at No. 5 on the UK Albums Chart and was certified Gold, I’d say this is a smart move.
