Lana Del Rey confirmed for Isle of Wight Festival

This year's Isle of Wight Festival will feature Lana Del Rey, with the American star named as one of the headliners of the Big Top stage.

The singer has risen to fame in recent months, with her debut album Born To Die having taken the number one spot in the UK.

Speaking to NME about booking Del Rey, the festival's promoter John Giddings said: "I approached her before Christmas. They [Del Rey's management] thought the Isle Of Wight was one of the best things they could do to develop her live career."

He added that the performer is happy with her placement on the bill and is keen to be part of a music event that features Bruce Springsteen.

Del Rey, who has had a string of hits including Video Games and Born To Die, will join Pearl Jam, Biffy Clyro, Elbow, Jessie J, Tinie Tempah and Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds at the musical event.
