George Ezra, Biffy Clyro & Noel Gallagher to headline Isle of Wight 2019

Lily Allen, Sigrid and Fatboy Slim are also set to appear at this year’s fest.

George Ezra, Biffy Clyro and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds have been confirmed as headliners for this year’s Isle of Wight Festival.

Fatboy Slim will also be playing - closing proceedings on the Saturday after George Ezra performs - alongside the likes of Lily Allen, Sigrid, Bastille and IDLES.

Speaking of his headline performance at the fest, George Ezra has said: It’s been less than 18 months since I was last at The Isle of Wight Festival, but it already seems like a world away. In the time since, my second album Staying At Tamara’s has been released and I’ve taken these songs around the world and back. It’s going to be brilliant to return to the beautiful Isle and play those new songs to an audience that has now heard the record. I’m extremely flattered to have been asked to headline and can’t wait to get up and play.”

This year’s Isle of Wight Festival will take place from 13th to 16th June on the Isle of Wight (duh…)

The full list of names announced today is as follows:

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, George Ezra, Biffy Clyro, Fatboy Slim, Anne-Marie, Bastille, Courteeners, Dean Lewis, DMA’S, Freya Ridings, Gerry Cinnamon, IDLES, James, Jax Jones, Jess Glynne, KT Tunstall, Lily Allen, Madness, Miles Kane, Mystery Jets, Richard Ashcroft, Rick Astley, Sam Fender, Sigala, Sigrid, The Coral, Tom Walker and Wild Front

Tickets for the 2019 edition of the fest go on sale this Friday (25th January) from 9am. Head to their website for more info..
