We're still a month away from the official announcement, but insiders are already starting to tease this year's V Festival line-up. And we have some possible names from a sneaky source.

Fresh from her 777 Tour and the release of her 'Unapologetic' album, Rihanna's being eyed for a headline slot at V2013. Few popstars have the pull Rihanna does and organisers are thought to be pulling out all the stops to book the 'Stay' singer for a show-stopping performance.

Azealia Banks looks set to take a spot at this year's V Fest. Azealia had to cancel a series of UK festival dates last year to continue work on her debut album.

Despite asking Perez Hilton to kill himself and the unfortunate moment '212' was used in Giovanna Plowman's tampon-eating video, Azealia is one of the most hyped artists of the past year. And now we're closing in on the LP's release date, a source tells us the '212' singer is 99% confirmed for V.

And so we come to the third name on the list: BBC Sound of 2013 winners Haim are being pegged as a favourite booking. While our source told us that there's still some uncertainty when it comes to Haim, they are being "pursued very intensely" to bring their summery Californian indie-pop to one of the UK's biggest festivals.

Who do you want to see in the line-up for V this year?
