Travis said: “We’re made up that we are making a trip back to the Isle of Wight, last time was a top gig. There's a lot of rock and roll history gone down on that little island and it's great to be a part of it again.”
 
We’re also excited to announce appearances from a selection of the best new and established acts, including chart toppers Travis, Clean Bandit, The Specials and John Newman. What’s more we’ve got LA duo Deap Vally, half Scottish, half Swedish singer-songwriter Nina Nesbitt, Mercury Prize nominees The Horrors, plus the hotly tipped Gorgon City and The Strypes, all performing over the weekend. 
 
Choral rock outfit The Polyphonic Spree, From The Jam, featuring Bruce Foxton and Russell Hastings and four-piece girl group Neon Jungle will be heading to the Island this summer.  Along with, Swim Deep, Chlöe Howl and The Selecter.  But if that wasn’t enough, we’re also pleased to have top producer and DJ Duke Dumont, indie rockers Peace, July Talk and iconic British band TheMove all on the bill.  Finally, rounding off this spectacular list of artists we have Dappy, British pop-rock band Lawson and newcomers The Vamps...roll on June!
 
With an English Festival exclusive from Biffy Clyro on Friday 13th June, a UK & Ireland exclusive from Red HotChili Peppers on Saturday 14th June and now Kings of Leon on Sunday, we’re counting down the days until this incredible Main Stage line up lands on the Island.
