Unsigned acts battle to be seen at Isle of Wight Festival

Anyone heading to this year's Isle of Wight Festival could be in for a treat in terms of watching the latest and best talent, as a number of top unsigned acts are set to perform.

Six artists from the UK and Ireland are to be chosen to take to the six stages at the event, with a national competition now underway to discover the best unsigned artists.

Applications are currently being examined, with a shortlist of possible artists to perform in front of a live panel of music industry leaders in London next month.

Festival organiser John Giddings said: "It's great to give up and coming musicians an opportunity to showcase in front of the Isle of Wight Festival audience. Wouldn't it be great for one of them to headline one day!"

Set to run from June 13th to 16th, the Isle of Wight Festival already has a host of top acts confirmed, including headliners Bon Jovi, The Killers and the Stone Roses, as well as Blondie, Paul Weller, Example & DJ Wire and many more.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801537693-ADNFCR
