Alexandra Burke: I want Isle of Wight Festival slot

Alexandra Burke has issued a plea for the organisers of the 2011 Isle of Wight Festival to get in touch and offer her a place on the bill.

The X Factor's 2008 champion stated that she wasn't ready to do the festival circuit before as she did not have a live band.

But now that she does, she is ready to play events such as Glastonbury, the Isle of Wight Festival and Wireless, she told the Daily Star.

Burke added that her next record, which will be the follow-up to 2009's number one album Overcome, is set to feature special guest appearances from an anonymous performer.

"I know a writer called Autumn, who is really good friends with this artist," she revealed. "It just happened and the best things happen when it's natural and organic."

Should Burke be booked to play the 2011 Isle of Wight Festival, she would join acts such as Kings of Leon, Kasabian, Foo Fighters, Tom Jones, Hurts, Iggy and the Stooges and Pulp on the bill for the June event.
