Host of new acts confirmed for Isle of Wight Festival

The Isle of Wight Festival's already impressive line-up for 2014 has got even more stacked in recent days, with the addition of a whole gaggle of big names.

With the likes of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Kings of Leon and Biffy Clyro already confirmed, the organisers have just announced that they will be joined between June 12th and 15th by 90s alternative rockers Suede, pop punk sensations Fall Out Boy, current chart starlet Katy B and singer-songwriter Tom Odell. 

Suede will be playing the Main Stage on Sunday along with Fall Out Boy, Katy B will be headlining the Big Top on the Friday and Odell will be playing the Main Stage.

Also confirmed are Ella Eyre, The Pretty Reckless, Anna Calvi, Starsailor, Boy George, The Struts, Alison Moyet, Amber Run, Inspiral Carpets and The Doors Alive. 

"It just gets better and better," commented festival promoter John Giddings. "We are honoured that these incredible artists are coming to our festival to kick off the summer festival season in style."

But for BRITs Critics' Choice Award winner Tom Odell, playing the festival is the realisation of a longstanding ambition, rather than a chore. 

"When I was a bit younger, I used to climb up on the hill near to where I grew up and stare at the Isle Of Wight," he said.

"I remember knowing that a grand music festival was held on the island every year, and I dreamed at some point I would be there, playing. That day has come, and I am thrilled."

Tickets to see the festival, which was made famous by the performances of Jimi Hendrix and others in 1970, cost £190 for the weekend or £75 for one day. Car parking is priced at £15 for the duration or £10 for the day. The £100 campervan tickets have already sold out, so don't delay in securing your place. 

The event is held at Seaclose Park near Newport just south of Cowes - making it easy to reach from the ferry terminal for those travelling from the mainland. ADNFCR-3083-ID-801700239-ADNFCR
