The Who headliners of Isle Of Wight Festival
The band will appear as a UK exclusive at this year's event. Headliners already confirmed are Queen with Adam Lambert plus a joint slot from Stereophonics and Faithless.
Festival boss John Giddings declared to NME: "The Who are part of the fabric of The Isle of Wight Festival, and it’s great to welcome them back to the island as part of their ongoing 50th anniversary celebrations. We’re proud to have a line up of home-grown headliners to help celebrate our own 15th anniversary and ensure that this year delivers yet another unforgettable weekend of music."
In addition to The Who, Isle of Wight Festival has also added Richard Ashcroft to its line-up today (March 17). He will perform songs from new album 'These People'.
Adam Ant and The Damned will also be at the festival alongside Iggy Pop, Buzzcocks, The Godfathers and The Sex Pissed Dolls in what will be a celebration of punk's 40th birthday.
Isle of Wight Festival is one of the most eclectic music festivals in Europe. After its legendary first editions between 1968 and 1970, IOW was resurrected in 2002 and now showcases the very best of rock, pop, indie and electro music in an idyllic spot off England's south coast.
