2011 Isle of Wight Festival to be a vintage year

The 2011 Isle of Wight Festival is set to be a vintage year, according to its organiser.

John Giddings was speaking after news broke yesterday (January 17th 2011) that the event had sold out.

"It's fantastic to sell out five months in advance. The tenth anniversary is going to be a vintage year," he promised.

Some of the biggest bands in the world have already been announced as being on the line-up for the 2011 Isle of Wight Festival - including the trio of headliners Kings of Leon, Foo Fighters and Kasabian.

They will be joined for the Newport bash, which takes place from June 10th to 12th 2011, by acts as diverse as Pixie Lott, Pulp, Plan B, Public Image Ltd and Manic Street Preachers.

There will also be special shows from Tom Jones and Boy George, while fans of new music will be catered for by the likes of Hurts, Beady Eye and Two Door Cinema Club.
