Other acts who have been confirmed for the festival include Rihanna, Plan B, Dizzee Rascal, Duran Duran and Pendulum.
Ticketholders can also look forward to performances from indie veterans Manic Street Preachers, electric guitar band The Courteeners and solo star Bruno Mars.
There are places on the bill for the likes of Primal Scream, Tinie Tempah, Razorlight, Jessie J and Mark Ronson as well.
Organisers have promised they have many more acts to announce for the festival's four stages over the next few months.
A new addition to the V Festival for 2011 is the Comedy Stage, with the line-up for this arena yet to be confirmed.
