The music festival set to replace V Festival, Rize Festival, will only take place in Hylands Park, Chelmsford. Unlike V Festival, Rize Festival will not take place on two sites. The organiser has confirmed that no event will take place on the Weston Park site in Staffordshire.

Festival Republic, which organise Rize Festival, has revealed the line-up for the inaugural event in Essex, taking place August 17-18.

Sir Richard Branson announced in October that Virgin would no longer be sponsoring V Festival, leading the organiser to reveal that the festival would carry on in 2018 with a new name.

Historically, V Festival took place across both the Essex and Staffordshire sites annually on the third weekend in August. There are rumours that the Weston Park estate is in talks to host a new major event in 2019.
