We've been speaking to some of the artists ahead of their performances this weekend - and they're buzzing!
Organisers are releasing regular updates about this weekend's festival in Weston Park and Hylands Park, as excitement builds.
V Fest are advising festival goers that there will be increased security checks for anyone going onto the site. Everyone heading in will be subject to extra searches of their vehicles, bags and their person. There are also bag size restrictions in place for anyone going into the actual arena to check out the world class acts.
There’s no excuse for running out of a bevy during Jay Z’s set with the concierge service the festival are doing!
Dedicated staff will be roaming the arena over the course of the weekend, and in exchange for concierge tokens, they can get you up to 4 drinks from the bar! So no chance of missing your fave acts.
Staffs police will be on site all weekend, and they have some pretty sound advice - look after your mates!
Staffs Police have also reminded festivalgoers that armed officers will be present at this years event, to act as reassurance. This coincides with additional security searches that will be carried out on the way into the campsites & arenas.
Please be patient entering the campsites, we are conducting strict and thorough bag searches and there may be some delay. #VWeston— V FESTIVAL (@vfestival) August 18, 2017
We spoke to Chief Superintendent Wayne Jones from Staffordshire Police - he told us there's no excuses to bring drugs onto site.
Keep it Capital, we'll have more information on any travel disruption around Weston Park this weekend so you can hopefully avoid the worst of it!
