Thursday, 29 November 2007
Alt-rock stalwarts The Smashing Pumpkins, who last graced an Oz stage 10 years ago, will be headlining V Festival 2008

They'll be followed at the helm by UK pop chameleons Duran Duran, returning to Australia to showcase their new album Red Carpet Massacre (gold dusted with the Timbaland and Timberlake Midas touch).

Joining them on V Festival's two main stages will be Queens of the Stone Age, the freshly reformed The Jesus and Mary Chain in their original incarnation, UK sensation Mika (east coast only), French electronic-ists Air (playing Australia for the first time - east coast only), love-from-above disco indie party people CSS, and the newest Modular sensations Plug-In City.

Aussie dance heroes The Presets will take to the stage once again along with The Tough Alliance, and many more uber hip acts from around the globe.

Since its inception 12 years ago in the UK, V Festival has prided itself on creating awe inspiring line-ups. So far, V Festival has pulled a remarkable swag of rabbits out of its musical hat for 2008.
