Now the man himself will be making a special guest appearance at the Isle of Wight Festival 2013.

Paul Weller says: “It’s been a while since I've played the Isle of Wight Festival and I’m excited to be playing it this year, it’s a great way to kick off the summer."
 
John Giddings, the Festival’s promoter, says: “If you like music, you like Paul Weller – he is one of the greatest singer songwriters this country has produced and we are proud to bring him to our small island off the south coast – we have plenty of pebbles on a beach for him!!”
 
Making their Isle of Wight Festival debuts under the Big Top on Saturday 15th June, are electro-pop star Ke$ha and grime-mastermind Devlin.
