John Giddings: I've booked a 2013 Isle of Wight Festival headliner

The organiser of the Isle of Wight Festival has announced he has already secured one of the headline acts for the event next summer.

John Giddings revealed the band approached him and asked if they could play at the festival, which will take place in June 2013.

In an interview with NME, he confirmed that the group will be playing on the Friday night of the event in one of the most prestigious slots on the bill.

"They phoned me actually, it's a good one, we should all have our fingers, arms and legs crossed it comes off," Mr Giddings said, prompting speculation about who the band might be.

He added he is hoping to confirm "a good rock band" for the main stage of the Isle of Wight Festival this summer, to play just before The Vaccines on the final day of the event.

This year, the bash is headlined by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Pearl Jam and Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band.
