Isle of Wight 2014

Festival season is over for 2013 and it’s been a great year with the weather on the whole being generally sunny and dry unlike previous years.

However just because we’ve got to wait until 2014 for another summer of festivals doesn’t mean we can’t find out who will be appearing on the festival circuit.

The Isle of Wight Festival 2014 will be held from the 12th to the 14th of June and takes place at Seaclose Park on the Isle of Wight in England.

This morning (10th December) several acts were announced for the 2014 Isle of Wight Festival including Friday night headliners Biffy Clyro.

Simon Neil, frontman of Biffy Clyro commented on the announcement and said: “We are over the moon to announce that we will headline the Main Stage of the Isle of Wight Festival next year, on Friday June 13th.”

“To follow the likes of Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Bob Dylan and Pearl Jam is an honour. We cannot wait to get back to this iconic Festival, and this beautiful island!”

Another Scotsman will perform on the Friday night as DJ and producer Calvin Harris has also been confirmed as performing at the Isle of Wight 2014.

Festival promoter  John Giddings added: “Friday night is going to kick it out of the park with Biffy & Calvin and special guests Rudimental – I can’t wait…”

“Having Passenger and The 1975 already on board we’re set for one of our most contemporary years – with the class of The Waterboys complementing the young guns nicely…”

Matthew Healey from The 1975 commented following the announcement a few weeks ago that they would be appearing at the festival and said: “The Isle of Wight Festival has such a rich musical heritage. We can’t wait to play there in the summer.”

Passenger aka Mike Rosenberg was also confirmed recently for the Isle of Wight Festival and said: “I can’t wait to play at the Isle of Wight Festival. I played there on a small stage a few years ago and had an amazing time. It’ll be great to get back there,”

Early bird tickets for the 2014 Isle of Wight Festival will go on sale this Thursday (12th of December).
