The Modfather to headline Isle of Wight Festival

Fans of The Jam and the music of Paul Weller are in for a real treat this year should they head along to the Isle of Wight Festival, with the Modfather himself confirmed as a headliner on the Friday (June 14th) evening.

Set to grace the Main Stage, Weller is no stranger to the festival scene, having performed at venues across the globe for more than the last 30 years.

Following success as frontman for The Jam and The Style Council, he went on to forge a successful solo career and can now draw on an extensive back catalogue of hits that will certainly have the crowds up and chanting, including Pebbles on the Beach, The Changingman, Going Underground and many more.

Festival promoter John Giddings commented: "If you like music, you like Paul Weller - he is one of the greatest singer songwriters this country has produced and we are proud to bring him to our small island off the south coast - we have plenty of pebbles on a beach for him!"

Born in 1958, Weller was one of the biggest names in 1970s and 1980s music in the UK, drawing on varied influences including The Beatles, The Who, Small Faces and The Kinks, among others.

Other acts that are already confirmed to be taking part in the Isle of Wight Festival 2013 - which will kick off on June 13th at 12:00 BST - include I Am Kloot, K$SHA, Kodaline, Steve Harley and the Cockney Rebel, the Gypsy Queens and Willy Mason. Other confirmed headline acts for this year are The Killers, Blondie, The Stone Roses and Bon Jovi.

Tickets are available now and cost £185 for a full weekend pass with camping, £170 without camping, £75 for an adult day ticket and £37.50 for children.

Infants under six can get in for free, while unfortunately entry for campervans has now already sold out.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801527464-ADNFCR
