We couldn't have been more excited to celebrate V Festival's 21st birthday at Weston Park, Stafford on Saturday 20th! Headlining the event was none other than Rihanna who'd performed at V before, with other main stage acts such as David Guetta, Little Mix, Years & Years, and Example.
The weather at Weston Park, Stafford was damp but forgiving. Raining on and off throughout the day, ducking into the plasticine blue tent in which the Dance Arena was located acted as a failsafe for revellers who couldn't wait to indulge in some daytime clubbing.
Years & Years' Olly Alexander raked in the crowd with an upbeat and heartfelt performance prior to Little Mix lighting up the stage shortly after with covers of Willow Smith and Beyonce alongside hits such as Salut and Black Magic. Dressed in matching army bomber jackets, khaki green bodysuits, and black thigh high boots, the girls whipped up a frenzy when Craig David made a surprise appearance during the set!
Scoping out the scene at V Healthy (yes, there ARE food and drink options at V for clean eating practitioners) prior to David Guetta's set, we were alerted to his arrival when festival goers dropped what they were doing/eating/drinking (literally) and flocked in droves to the main stage.
By this point, with tunes like Sexy Chick, Bad, and Hey Mama blaring from the speakers, we'd long eschewed caring whether our clothes clung to our bodies from the rain and embraced the beat with gusto.
Soon after, rides and food stalls were abandoned by all as everyone patiently waited for Rihanna who true to RiRi style, arrived with a bang in a chocolate brown leather bodysuit, asymmetric distressed trousers, and a matching oversized trench.
Leaving the cheering crowd satisfied with a stellar performance complemented by her contortionist backup dancers and hits such as Diamonds, Work, and BBHMM, RiRi proved once again she has stage presence like no other!
