The Isle of Wight Festival have added more top names to the already chart-busting line-up for this year’s event, meaning there are even more fantastic reasons to switch to Wightfibre and claim your free ticket(s) now. Among others, Texas, Jonas Blue, The Undertones, Kaiser Chiefs and Example have been added to the line-up alongside confirmed headliners Rod Stewart, David Guetta and Arcade Fire. Here are our top 5 picks of this week’s announcements:
As news of their next appearance broke, they posted on Facebook saying ‘We’re coming back to the Official Isle of Wight Festival! Are you?’. The Kaiser Chiefs are best known for anthems such as ‘Oh My God’, ‘I Predict A Riot’ and ‘Everyday I Love You Less And Less’ all from their 2005 album ‘Employment’. Later, in 2007, they released an anthem of a generation with ‘Ruby’ from the album ‘Yours Truly, Angry Mob’.
The Undertones formed in Ireland in 1975 and quickly became known for their innovative musical style and inventive lyrics. Their most popular song is ‘Teenage Kicks‘, taken from the 1978 album of the same name.
Many celebrity moguls praised The Undertones for their music, including DJ John Peel. The Undertones reformed in 1999 and plan to play their hits alongside new tracks in their upcoming festival performance.
The Shires are a Country duo comprising of singer-songwriters Crissie Rhodes and Ben Earle. In 2015 the The Shires released their debut album ‘Brave‘ which became the first album from a UK country act to enter in the top 10 of the album charts. ‘Brave’ was also one of only four albums in any genre to sell over 100,000 copies in it’s first year and also achieve gold status. Their debut success was closely followed by second album ‘My Universe which became the fastest selling UK country album ever.
This June will be Texas‘ first performance at the Isle of Wight Festival. The band, fronted by Sharleen Spiter are well known for late 90’s hits such as ‘I Don’t Want A Lover‘ and ‘Say What You Want‘.
In 2015, Texas celebrated their 25th anniversary and marked the milestone with the appropriately named album ‘Texas 25’. Rather then releasing an album full of new music, this record treated Texas fans to remixes of their top hits as well as some new material.
Nothing But Thieves from Southend are also making their debut Isle of Wight Festival appearance after a busy two years of sell-out shows promoting their self-titled debut album.
You may think that you haven’t ever heard of Nothing But Thieves, but two of their most popular songs ‘Itch‘ and ‘Trip Switch‘ have been played on Radio One’s prime time playlist proving incredibly popular among alternative rock and pop fans. Some are even likening Nothing But Thieves to top South West band and previous Isle of Wight Festival headliners Muse.
