The Ting Tings

Story by Jack Foley

THE Ting Tings, Prodigy and Basement Jaxx are among the first acts to be announced for the 2009 Isle of Wight festival.

The trio of bands will all perform on the main stage during the first day of this year’s event, on Friday, June 12, 2009 – as will drum ‘n’ bass act Pendulum.

Organisers have pledged that this year’s festival – the eighth – will be “the most electric party the island has ever seen” as the annual event goes from strength to strength. Last year, bands including the Kaiser Chiefs and the Sex Pistols played in front of more than 50,000 fans.

The line-ups for the other two days will be announced in due course.
