Game of Thrones star to perform at IoW Festival

The Isle of Wight (IoW) Festival will be welcoming a star of the screen to the stage, with Game of Throne's actress Caprice van Houten confirmed to be putting on a show with her band at this year's event.

Caprice & Band will be performing in the Strongbow Garden on Sunday (June 16th), with the group having recently released their debut album See You on the Ice.

It includes a number of collaborations, including songs with Antony Hegarty, Marc Ribot, Steve Shelley and Howe Gelb.

Ms van Houten said: "So proud to show 'our baby' to the IoW Festival where my heroes Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Miles Davis and The Doors have all played. I am looking forward to seeing Laura Mvula, Paul Weller, Jake Bugg and I am Kloot play."

Festival promoter John Giddings added the island is set to welcome "another star".

Famed for her portrayal of Melisandre in Game of Thrones, Ms van Houten's character came to the fore in season two of the fantasy series as a priestess of the Lord of Light.

It is ultimately her actions and counsel that lead to Stannis Baratheon making his claim for the Iron Throne, with her otherworldly powers proving decisive in clearing the path for his ascension.

Away from the realm of fantasy, visitors to this year's IoW Festival are also in for a treat of a different kind, as a number of luxury spa facilities are being introduced to help music lovers rest and recuperate after a hard day's partying and seeing bands.

Wood-fired hot tubs and barrel saunas are being provided by Bathing under the Sky, while guests will also be able to enjoy hot showers and hair grooming facilities on-site throughout the weekend.

As a result, there really is no excuse for festivalgoers not to look and feel their best at this year's show.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801569444-ADNFCR
