Isle of Wight Festival 2020 Line-Up Announcement 820 459 admin

The UK’s oldest festival – first held in 1968 – celebrates the 50th anniversary of the iconic 1970 festival next year, which secured its place in pop culture history thanks to performances from Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Joni Mitchell and more. Hendrix’s legendary headline performance was his last in the UK and the 1970 festival was the last on the island until it was resurrected in 2002.

Friday’s headliners both make their Isle of Wight Festival debut in 2020; international superstar Lionel Richie will co-headline the Main Stage alongside GRAMMY and BRIT Award-nominated man of the moment Lewis Capaldi. Special guest Pete Tong will bring the spirit of the White Isle to Seaclose Park, as he closes the Main Stage on Friday night with his Ibiza Classics.

On playing, Lionel said: I’m excited to be playing at The Isle of Wight Festival next summer. It’s the first time I’ve performed at the festival and I can’t think of a better way to start the summer! It’s a festival steeped in music history – Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones have all headlined and I’m honoured to be joining the esteemed list! See you all there.

Since debuting 20 years ago, Saturday co-headliners Snow Patrol have amassed over 17 million global album sales, 1 billion global track streams and countless award wins. They’re joined in headlining duties by The Chemical Brothers, a duo who redefined the concept of live electronic music, bagged six UK Number 1 albums, four GRAMMY wins and a reputation for a transcendent live experience.

Duran Duran, in a UK festival exclusive, will close the Main Stage on Sunday night. The British music icons and purveyors of triumphant pop music will see out the 2020 event in style.
