Gracing the Main Stage on Friday 14th June before a headline performance from The Stone Roses will be the British institution that is Paul Weller. A pre-eminent songwriter of his generation, Paul Weller has attracted international success as frontman of The Jam and The Style Council, as well as his critically acclaimed solo career. Now the man himself will be making a special guest appearance at the Isle of Wight Festival 2013.
Paul Weller says: “It’s been a while since I've played the Isle of Wight Festival and I’m excited to be playing it this year, it’s a great way to kick off the summer."
John Giddings, the Festival’s promoter, says: “If you like music, you like Paul Weller – he is one of the greatest singer songwriters this country has produced and we are proud to bring him to our small island off the south coast – we have plenty of pebbles on a beach for him!!”
Making their Isle of Wight Festival debuts under the Big Top on Saturday 15th June, are electro-pop star Ke$ha and grime-mastermind Devlin.
Over on the Main Stage, American singer songwriter Willy Mason and British rock legend Ian Hunter will be appearing on Saturday 15th June. Plus, one of the UK’s best rock bands Little Angels and Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel will be wowing the crowds on Sunday 16th June. Also keep an eye and an ear out for The Gypsy Queens who will be roaming the Festival site.
As the first major music Festival of the year, the multi award winning Isle of Wight Festival is steeped in history and is famed for its eclectic & electric line-up, mixing iconic legendary artists with the hottest up and coming acts.
