Neil Young to Headline the Isle of Wight Festival 2009

06-03-2009 For over forty years Neil Young, one of the most significant artists of the rock ‘n’ roll era, has pioneered musical genres and influenced generations of fans and now rock’s most intriguing chameleon will be sharing his ‘Heart of Gold’ in an exclusive headline performance at this year’s Isle of Wight Festival.

The cult hero will close the festival on Sunday 14th June with his deeply personal lyrics and distinctive guitar, performing a set which is sure to be another unforgettable Isle of Wight Festival memory.

The Canadian legend will join an already blistering line up which sees The Prodigy, Basement Jaxx, The Ting Ting’s and Pendulum playing up a storm on Friday night. Saturday is just as impressive with Stereophonics and Razorlight rocking the Solent. Over in the Big Top The Charlatans front man Tim Burgess will be curating Sunday’s line up, so expect all sorts of surprises popping up as well as a set from the band.
