Muse Is "Best Headline Act", Deserves Headlines

Muse won the most awards and arguably the most bragging rights at tonight's V Festival Awards, walking away as the voters' choice for Best Headline Act and Best Rock Act.

The Kooks took the Best Breakthrough Act prize, while The Streets, Prodigy, and Girls Aloud won the awards for Best Urban Act, Best Dance Act, and Best Pop Act, respectively (although a zany mix-up in which they won each-other's awards might have proved amusing)

Arctic Monkeys' "I Bet You Look Good on the Dance Floor" won the Anthem of the Summer award. Primal Scream was deemed "Festival Feel-Good Act" and Radiohead's V Festival performance of "Creep" was recognized as the Most Memorable Moment.
