Isle of Wight Festival announces 2017 Saturday headliners

November 07, 2016 :: 09:14 AM EDT

After a phenomenal 2016 that saw Queen + Adam Lambert and The Who grace the iconic main stage, the Isle of Wight Festival announced today Arcade Fire as the first headline act for 2017. The much-coveted appearance will be their only UK festival of the Summer and their first UK festival performance since 2014.

Isle of Wight Festival Promoter, John Giddings, said:

“I’m so happy to have secured Arcade Fire as our first headliner. David Bowie recommended them and I’ve been a fan ever since. Last year was an incredible year and I’m ready for us to come back even better in 2017.”

The Isle of Wight Festival takes place from 8th – 11th June at Seaclose Park, Newport with Early Bird Tickets on sale from today. Due to popular demand, 2017 sees the return of Day Tickets in addition to Weekend Tickets.

A full range of ticket, travel and camping / accommodation options are available for The Isle of Wight Festival from www.isleofwightfestival.com.
