part 1of our V Festival preview, we gave you a guide to day 1 at the Staffordshire site.

The likes of the Killers, Basement Jaxx, Kasabian, Manic Street Preachers, Fratellis, Lily Allen and Graham Coxon all move to Chelmsford for the second day (August 19), with a long line of tour buses heading up from Essex to bring V 2007 to a close in the Midlands.

Foo Fighters are back with a new album this September, and the first taster from it, 'The Pretender' is unleashed as a Download from Monday (Aug 13).

Dave Grohl and co headline the V Stage on the Sunday night, with the Kooks having swapped with Basement Jaxx to bring the Channel 4 Stage to it's 2007 climax in Staffordshire.

The other headline acts are Primal Scream (JJB Stage) and Bright Eyes (Virgin Mobile Stage).

With the news that Amy Winehouse is recovering from what the tabloids believe was a drugs overdose this week, there's speculation in the press that her appearance at V is in doubt. She is set to play the Channel 4 Stage on day 2.
