KINGS of Leon have been confirmed as the third headline act for this year’s Isle of Wight Festival.

The Nashville band previously headlined the event in 2011.

They join the previously named Red Hot Chili Peppers and Biffy Clyro as this year’s headliners.

Other bands to have been added to the line-up include Travis, Clean Bandit, John Newman, Gorgon City, Deap Vally, Nina Nesbitt, The Horrors, The Specials and The Strypes.

Dappy, Lawson and four-piece girl group Neon Jungle have also been added along with Swim Deep, Chloe Howl, DJ Duke Dumont, Peace, July Talk and The Vamps.

The Isle of Wight Festival takes place from June 12 to 15 at Seaclose Park, Newport.

Kings Of Leon released their sixth studio album, Mechanical Bull, in October last year, which went to No.1 in the UK to become their fourth chart-topping record to date.

Festival promoter John Giddings commented: “Three words define this year’s headliners – rock the Wight. The bill is truly eclectic, we have something for everyone, new and emerging talent mixed with established artists.”
