Macca to get two-hour Isle of Wight Festival set

Sir Paul McCartney's headline set at this weekend's Isle of Wight Festival has been extended by organisers to two hours.

Attendees of the event, which gets underway today (June 11th 2010), will now be treated to a longer show by the former Beatles bassist than was originally planned, reports the Isle of Wight County Press.

The schedule has been moved around to accommodate an extra few hits from the Liverpudlian, who will take to the stage in Seaclose Park, Newport at 21:00 BST on Sunday night.

Before Sir Paul's set, US pop star Pink will perform, with bands such as The Courteeners, Friendly Fires, Editors and Spandau Ballet set to play on the Main Stage throughout the day.

Last night, the Isle of Wight County Press reports that a pre-party at the Isle of Wight Festival was held, with 80s band Squeeze performing a set to thousands of people who got to the site early.

The band performed hits such as Cool For Cats, Annie Get Your Gun and Tempted (By the Fruit of Another).
