Top acts announced for Isle of Wight Festival line-up

Bon Jovi and the Stone Roses have already been confirmed as headline acts at the Isle of Wight Festival 2013, and anticipation is growing among prospective attendees with the news that several more acts are set to take part.

Joining the two legendary rock acts will be rising star Jake Bugg, much-loved Irish rock band The Script, British indie sensations Bloc Party, and many more.

Singer-songwriter Jake Bugg has met with a great deal of praise for his debut album, earning comparisons to Oasis and the Arctic Monkeys, and will take to the stage on June 14th.

The Script have had their music featured on television shows such as 90210, Made in Chelsea and The Vampire Diaries, while frontman Danny O'Donoghue has risen to prominence as a judge and vocal coach on The Voice UK. They will perform on June 16th.

Finally, Bloc Party - who are scheduled to play on June 15th - have recently released their fourth album and are known as one of the most important British guitar bands of the last five years.

Other acts lined up for this year's festival include Paloma Faith, The Maccabees, Ellie Goulding, Happy Mondays, Fun, Bonnie Raitt, Imperial Teen, The Farm and Blondie.

One of the most critically acclaimed rock acts of all time, Blondie reformed in 1997 and have enjoyed further popularity since then, taking part in a number of festivals and tours.

"The Isle of Wight Festival is one of the best and most famous in the world [and] we can't wait to play it again this coming summer," said the band.

John Giddings, the festival's promoter, says: "We are proud to present some of the best new music around, together with artists who helped scope the face of modern music - it's a stunning combination so far."ADNFCR-3083-ID-801499565-ADNFCR
