The Isle of Wight Festival announces that BRITs Critics’ Choice winner James Bay will be playing this year’s festival, which takes place 11-14 June.
The hotly tipped songwriter, whose debut album Chaos and the Calm is released in March, has been selling out shows up and down the UK and this special festival appearance will undoubtedly be a highlight for fans who have been watching his ascent to be one of the most talked about acts of 2015.
Isle of Wight Festival promoter John Giddings said: “We always strive to put on acts at all levels – from breaking acts to the headliners and we’re very excited to have James Bay part of the festival this year. He’s been topping so many ‘ones to watch lists’ for 2015 - and he’ll certainly be one to watch at The Isle of Wight Festival!”
Also confirmed to play this year’s Isle of Wight Festival are Fleetwood Mac, The Black Keys, The Prodigy, Pharrell Williams, Paolo Nutini, Billy Idol, You Me At Six, Jessie Ware, First Aid Kit, James and many more – for full line up details go to www.isleofwightfestival.com.

The festival offers 12 stages of live music over the weekend - including Main Stage headliners, acoustic sets, DJ performances and up-and-coming talent - alongside a huge variety of additional entertainment and activities such as the Bohemian Woods, Intoxicated Tea Rooms and Hipshaker, to escape from everyday life for that one weekend in June. Summer starts at the legendary Isle of Wight Festival, all the biggest names in music, one unmissable weekend: Be There.
