The View For Isle Of Wight

Returning Dundonian indie rascals The View have been added to the line up for this year's Isle Of Wight festival.

With strong ties to its history as a massive hippy free for all, the Isle Of Wight is rapidly emerging as one of Britain's finest festivals.

Combining smooth organisation with an eclectic bill that frequently snares exclusive performances the event is top of the list for a growing number of festival goers.

Last year's headliners included The Sex Pistols as well as reformed new wave legends The Police.

The View released their ambitious second album 'Which Bitch?' earlier this year, and will take to the stage bristling with confidence. Other new additions to the bill include Paulo Nutini - who actually makes a guest appearance on The View's album.

Also on the bill are Newcastle punk-funk types Maximo Park, London gloom rockers White Lies, The Rifles and many more. The Charlatans are set to perform, and have been entrusted with curating the line up for an entire arena.

Headliners this year will include The Prodigy, Stereophonics and Neil Young. Legendary songwriter Young is set for a busy summer after announcing a handful of headline appearances as well as sets at Glastonbury and London's Hard Rock Calling.

Isle Of Wight festival takes place between June 12th - 14th.
