V Festival director Simon Moran said: "After Coldplay and the Red Hot Chili Peppers we couldn't be happier to secure another massive indie act. We are thrilled PJ Harvey is joining us for the first time."
V Festival director Bob Angus added: "The eighth year of the V festival looks like it is going to be our strongest yet.
"This is going to be one summer music lovers won't be able to forget."
Further announcements about other bands, singers and musicians set to join the line-up of one of the country's biggest and best festivals are expected in the coming weeks but even with only three acts so far confirmed, V2003 is shaping up to be an unmissable event.
