Aston Merrygold to perform at V Festival
Former JLS star Aston Merrygold has been added to this year's V festival bill.
The singer will showcase his new solo material at the event, which is taking place between August 22-23.
He commented: "I'm so excited to be performing at V Festival for the first time, it's going to be great fun!
"It has definitely been tough trying to contain myself, sitting on my hands waiting to get out there with new material, so I can't wait to finally share my music with everyone...bring it on!!!"
Merrygold confirmed last year that he had inked a record deal with Warner Bros after the split of JLS in 2013.
Other new names for V Festival meanwhile include Mark Ronson, Example and Tove Lo.
They join a line-up already featuring acts such as Calvin Harris, Sam Smith and Ellie Goulding.
The festival is taking place over two days in Chelmsford and Staffordshire.
