Rize Festival, the replacement for V Festival, will not be held in Staffordshire in 2018.

Weston Park has hosted V Festival since 1999, with another event taking place simultaneously in Chelmsford, Essex.

The festival was rebranded after Richard Branson announced Virgin would no longer be sponsoring it.

It has been announced that the inaugural Rize Festival will be held at single venue at Chelmsford's Hylands Park.

Liam Gallagher and Stereophonics have been confirmed as headliners.
