Red Hot Chili Peppers to headline IOW Festival

This year's Isle of Wight Festival line-up has got even stronger after it was announced that American legends the Red Hot Chili Peppers will be joining the likes of Biffy Clyro, Calvin Harris and Rudimental at the June event. 

Excitingly, it will be the rock band's only UK performance in 2014 and their first festival appearance anywhere in the world since 2007. 

Commenting on the chance to perform on the island, the group said: "To headline the Isle of Wight Festival is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, following in the footsteps of Jimi Hendrix. 

"When we were offered the slot, we jumped at the chance."

The capture of the Red Hot Chili Peppers is a huge fillip for the festival, and its promoter John Giddings was understandably delighted with the news.

"Finally, we've got them," he said. "One of the most exciting rock bands of the modern era [performing] will be a highlight in the music history of the festival."

The foursome will headline the main stage on Saturday June 14th. ADNFCR-3083-ID-801688814-ADNFCR
