Manic Street Preachers to play Isle of Wight Festival

Manic Street Preachers are the latest major act to be announced as playing the 2011 Isle of Wight Festival.

The veteran Welsh rock band will be headlining the Big Top arena on the Sunday night.

Having continued as a trio following the mysterious disappearance of their charismatic guitarist Richey Edwards back in 1995, the Manics have forged themselves a reputation as one of the country's most consistent and enduring live acts.

They have enjoyed mainstream success with hit singles such as A Design for Life, Motorcycle Emptiness, Everything Must Go, Empty Souls and The Love of Richard Nixon.

If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next and The Masses against the Classes both made it to the top of the singles charts, while This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours was a number one album in 1998.

Tickets for the 2011 Isle of Wight Festival are on sale now through ferry operator Red Funnel.
