Biffy Clyro to headline at IOW Festival

Biffy Clyro are to headline the Main Stage at the Isle of Wight Festival in June next year. 

The legendary event, which was has seen performances from the likes of Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Bob Dylan and Pearl Jam in the past, is one of the highlights of the Isle of Wight events calendar and a prime reason book ferry travel to the island in 2014. 

Joining the Scottish rockers on the Main Stage on Friday June 13th will be Calvin Harris and Rudimental, with other acts confirmed including Passenger, The 1975 and The Waterboys. The full line-up for the four-day event will be announced shortly, with 'Early Bird' tickets already on sale. These passes, which must be bought before 8am on January 16th, cost £170 each for the whole festival and £70 for the day. . 

"We are over the moon to announce that we will headline the Main Stage of the Isle of Wight Festival," commented Biffy frontman Simon Neil. 

"We cannot wait to get back to this iconic festival and this beautiful island."

Festival promoter John Giddings was equally enthusiastic. "Friday night is going to kick it out of the park with Biffy and Calvin and special guests Rudimental - I can't wait. Having Passenger and The 1975 already on board, we're set for one of our most contemporary years, with the class of The Waterboys complementing the young guns nicely."

The Isle of Wight Festival is held at Seaclose Park, a recreation ground on the outskirts of Newport, which is a short drive down the River Medina from Cowes, where ferries from Southampton terminate. Car parking is priced at £15 for the duration and £10 for a day. Accommodation ranges from tents to tipis and Pod Pads, which look like large Wendy houses. A Lux Pad for two features a lockable door, a double bed with a foam mattress and electricity.
