10 times V Festival shook our world to the core irreparably

Last weekend music lovers from all over the world came together to celebrate the biggest pop festival of the year.

It also happened to be V festival’s 21st birthday with some of the biggest stars in the world like Justin Bieber, Rihanna, Little Mix and Sia headlining.

Basically, it was every pop fan’s dream and if you didn’t manage to make it, or just want to relive it, we’re here for you. Here’s the top ten moments of the weekend:

1. Do we even need to  discuss this? LITTLE MIX

Check out these 5 moments which will blow every Mixer’s mind.


Our personal fave is this super emosh performance of ‘Secret Love Song’. All the feels.

2. Our beloved Troye Sivan ascending to reach the stars. To think he had only played a few small gigs before this year. We are proud AF!

3. This year’s breakout star Zara Larsson nailing the choreography and being our #stylegoals.

She even brought out her mate MNEK for ‘Never Forget You’!

She even gave us a sneak peak of some new music. We can’t wait for the album.

4. Justin serving us up a slew of beautiful acoustic goodness.

5. Years and Years‘ Olly Alexander in a skirt/crop top combo, WHICH WE LOVED
