Latest update from Festival and Events UK
The Isle of Wight Festival has added more acts to this year’s line-up.
Brooke Combe, CMAT, Jamie Webster, Joesef, LF System, Lottery Winners, Lovejoy, Peter Hook & the Light, Plastic Mermaids and Sabrina Carpenter have joined the bill for June’s event.
They join headliners Pulp, George Ezra, The Chemical Brothers and Robbie Williams to kickstart this year’s festival season in style.
Breakthrough production duo LF System, who topped the UK chart with single “Afraid To Feel”, will make their Isle of Wight Festival debut on Thursday on the Big Top stage. US popstar Sabrina Carpenter will also bring her much-loved pop hits, including viral track “Nonsense”, across the pond and Scottish indie-pop singer-songwriter Joesef will also perform tracks from his debut album ‘Permanent Damage’, which was released earlier this year.
Edinburgh-born singer-songwriter Brooke Combe, who went viral with her rendition of the unofficial Scottish anthem ‘Yes Sir I Can Boogie’, also joins the line-up. Liverpool cultural figure and indie rock singer Jamie Webster will also be playing on the Island for the very first time.
Brighton rock band, Lovejoy, will open the Big Top on Sunday. Also confirmed to perform across the weekend are Island natives Plastic Mermaids, who have previously graced the stage at the Kashmir Cafe, indie newcomers Lottery Winners, Irish singer-songwriter CMAT and Peter Hook & the Light, led by iconic Joy Division and New Order bassist Peter Hook.

The Isle of Wight Festival is happening at Seaclose Park, Newport on the weekend of June 15-18.
This year’s fancy dress theme was also revealed as ‘Gods and Goddesses’ and fans are encouraged to draw inspiration from fictional, mythical or real life to create their costumes. With the bar continually raised each year, this year’s theme should be no different; those in costume and those who want to witness the spectacle should head to Strawberry Fields at 2pm on Saturday June 17, where the best dressed will be crowned. – TICKET LINK IN COMMENTS
