DJ Future to play IoW Festival

DJ Future has been named the winner of the Isle of Wight (IoW) Festival's DJ Competition, with the artist set to perform at this year's event.

Running from June 13th to 16th, the festival will see some of the biggest names in music heading to the Isle of Wight this year, with DJ Future joining this list of illustrious performers for the first time.

16-year-old Ben Firth, better known as DJ Future, will be taking to the stage in the Dance Tent after wowing judges of the DJ Competition with his energetic and fresh mixes.

He has already received critical acclaim - a surprising feat for someone of such tender years - having been featured on BBC Radio 1Xtra and also receiving praise from resident DJ MistaJam.

He has been cited as one of the most up-and-coming DJs in the UK and festivalgoers should therefore head along to what promises to be an unmissable set from the debutant in 2013.

The DJ Competition was judged by a panel of music industry professionals, with DJ Future blowing away his rivals in the live final, which took place at Topman's flagship store in Oxford Circus last Saturday (April 20th).

Other groups and individuals set to perform at this year's IoW Festival event include such class acts as The Killers, Bon Jovi, Blondie, I Am Kloot, Ellie Goulding, Rizzle Kicks, The Stone Roses, Bloc Party, The Maccabees, Paul Weller, The Boomtown Rats, Newton Faulkner, Fun, Emeli Sande and many more.

Tickets for the festival are still available, with weekend entry with camping costing £185 per person, while kids can get in for £92.50. Day tickets are priced at £75 and £37.50 respectively, while those hoping to bring a campervan are now unfortunately out of luck, as this type of ticket has sold out.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801577915-ADNFCR
