Sigur Ros star to play Isle of Wight gig

Sigur Ros frontman Jonsi is to head to the Isle of Wight later this year to perform at Bestival.

The Icelandic rock band are currently taking a break from touring and recording, but Jonsi is gearing up to release a solo album in April.

He will support the release with a series of live gigs, including just two UK festival appearances.

This means that music fans who head to the Isle of Wight this summer will be among the lucky few to hear Jonsi performing his new material on British shores.

Festival organiser Rob da Bank is particularly looking forward to the gig, as he considers himself a "massive supporter" of Sigur Ros.

"This is going to be a very special concert," he commented.

"Jonsi's voice is so incredible - get in the queue for the Big Top Saturday night now."

He joins a bill that already includes an eclectic mixture of artists, including The Prodigy, Rolf Harris, Ellie Goulding, Roxy Music, The Flaming Lips and LCD Soundsystem.
