Justin Bieber has something big planned for his V Festival debut


Justin Bieber is set to make a splash with his performance at V Festival.

The Love Yourself singer has requested 800 gallons of purified water - at 40 degrees - for his show at the music festival in August.

At some point during his set, the star will be soaked on stage.

The festival has said Justin's production is one of the most challenging in the 21-year history of the event.

V takes place across two sites - in Hylands Park, Chelmsford, and Weston Park, Staffordshire.

Justin, 22, who is making his V debut, will headline the Virgin Media Stage in Hylands Park on August 20.

He will then take to the stage in Weston Park on August 21.

Rihanna is also on the bill for the first time in five years.

The Barbadian singer will headline the Virgin Media Stage in Weston Park on the Saturday, before closing the festival in Hylands Park on the Sunday.

V Festival will take place at Hylands Park, Chelmsford, and Weston Park, Staffordshire, over the weekend of August 19 to 21.
