According to a source, the former One Direction star is a bit worried he might be hassled in the uber exclusive Louder Lounge area so has asked organisers to build an extra fence for him.
Our insider says: "Zayn asked if he could come along to the Louder Lounge this year but he's a bit worried about security so he requested the extra fence. Organisers aren't sure right now that will be possible but they've come up with an alternative: his own private area away from the crowd."
It's not your usual crowd though: every year Virgin Media's Louder Lounge at the Chelmsford festival site is home to dozens of celebrities.
This year, it's thought Brooklyn Beckham will be among the stars, as will Michelle Keegan and Mark Wright, who can enjoy a late honeymoon weekend at the glamorous event.
V Festival celebrates its 20th anniversary this year and once again has a star-studded lineup including Calvin Harris, Kasabian, Sam Smith, The Script and Ellie Goulding.
