Tinie Tempah added to Isle of Wight Festival bill

British rap star Tinie Tempah will be entertaining the crowds at the Isle of Wight Festival next summer after he was announced on the bill of the event.

The Pass Out singer, who was one of the biggest stars to emerge in the last year, will be appearing on the main stage on the Saturday of the bash (June 23rd).

Tempah will be showcasing his range of smash hit singles, which include the number one Written in the Stars, which he recorded with Eric Turner.

A collaboration could also be on the cards at the 2012 Isle of Wight Festival, as Labrinth will also be performing at the event and the star has worked with Tinie Tempah in the past.

The pair released Frisky in 2010 and the track went to number two in the UK singles charts.

Alternative rock group Band of Skulls have also been added to the bill of the Isle of Wight Festival and they will play on the last day of the event, along with singer-songwriter Joan Armatrading.

The Big Top will be transformed into a dance arena for the opening night of the bash, with Groove Armada already confirmed to be in attendance for the evening.

Their booking comes shortly after festival curator John Giddings confirmed he wanted to add more urban and dance music acts to the bill for 2012.

Black Stone Cherry, Spector, Zulu Winter, The Milk and Switchfoot have also been listed on the line-up for the 2012 Isle of Wight Festival, along with Penguin Prison and Crystal Castles, while the British indie group The Charlatans will be playing on the Garden Stage on Saturday night.

The new additions to the bill for the event are completed by American punk rock band X and singer-songwriter Terry Reid, while Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers have already been confirmed as the headliners.
