The Isle of Wight festival boasts the perfect setting for an already spectacular line up. It's getting better everytime I hear about it, with some of the most iconic bands and artists gracing the stages. I've never been more excited about a festival!
The latest news to hit us is that the genre-defining Primal Scream will be headling the Festival opening night in the Big Top on Thursday June 21st. With the addition of the Big Top’s red-hot bill will be one of the originators of drum & bass and this week’s current no. 1, DJ Fresh, who will be appearing on Friday June 22nd. Critically acclaimed duo The Pierces will bring their irresistible magnetism to The Garden Stage on Sunday June 24th for a magical headline performance.
Primal Scream have influenced countless bands and artists and been widely acclaimed by critics as one of the defining groups of the 1990s. Now the band returns to the island and takes their inimitable style to headline the Big Top on Thursday night. Also joining the bill on Friday is DJ Fresh who has had an impressive 12 months taking the UK dance sensation by storm. Topping the bill on The Garden Stage on Sunday are Allison and Catherine Pierce aka The Pierces who make a welcome return for the second year running.
