Ash and Katy B to play Isle of Wight Festival

Music fans heading to the Isle of Wight Festival this summer may be looking forward to seeing sets by Katy B and Ash this summer after the two acts were added to the bill of the event.

The organisers of the festival confirmed that the dubstep singer and the Britpop band will be travelling to the island in order to perform at the bash this June.

They will both be appearing at the second stage of the event - the Big Top - with Ash performing ahead of the headline set by The Darkness on the final night.

Pulled Apart By Horses have also been added to this day of the festival, while The VirginMarys will also be playing in this arena during the course of the last day.

Meanwhile, Katy B will be performing tunes such as Katy On a Mission, Lights On, Broken Record and Easy Please Me on the Saturday evening and has been named a special guest.

It opens up the possibility of a wide range of collaborations taking place in the Big Top on the middle day of the Isle of Wight Festival, with Magnetic Man, Professor Green and Wretch 32 all known for linking up with other acts set to take to the stage during this day.

Enter Shikari are another of the new names to have been added to the festival bill and the band will be playing in the Big Top on the Friday night before headliners Groove Armada.

Other acts named on the line-up of the Isle of Wight Festival include New York Dolls, Christina Perri, Stackridge and Beth Hart, all of which will be performing on the Garden Stage over the course of the weekend.

This year, the event is headlined by Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, as well as featuring Jessie J and The Vaccines.
