This year, the Isle of Wight Festival returns for its 50th edition, expect it to be one of the best years. It is always one of our summer highlights, below are 5 artists you MUST check out if you’re heading down south this June…
Bang Bang Romeo
Bang Bang Romeo are heavenly, think of a mix between The Last Shadow Puppets and Fleetwood Mac with elements of Florence and the Machine and Jefferson Airplane mixed in between. The Doncaster band make their big festival main-stage debut at this year’s 50th anniversary of the festival.
Tracks such as “Invitation” and “Carnival” are already fan favourites, though it is “Natural Born Astronaut” which is the best insight into their ever growing sound. Vocally and musically they are one of the best new bands around, mark our words!
Kasabian are THE ultimate festival band, their sound is made for the mass outdoor stage. Headlining Isle of Wight once again, expect a collection of hits, hits and more hits. “L.S.F,” “Fire,” and “Underdog” will no doubt become festival favourites once more.
Also expect tracks from latest album ‘For Crying Out Loud’ including the already infectious “Bless This Acid House” and “You’re In Love with a Psycho.”
Maybe one of the closing UK dates on his mammoth world tour in support of debut solo record ‘As You Were,’ Liam Gallagher returns to the Isle of Wight in a festival atmosphere for which his voice is best suited to.
Combining Oasis classics such as “Rock n Roll Star” and “Some Might Say” with new hits such as “Wall Of Glass” and “For What It’s Worth,” expect the festival crowd to be on euphoric form as Gallagher returns to one of Oasis’ favourite festival haunts.
Given that his recent Scottish tour sold out in a matter of minutes, including two dates at the city’s world famous Barrowlands Ballroom, one can only assume that Gerry Cinnamon’s rise to the Isle of Wight Main Stage will be a true “I was there” moment.
His sound is infectious, tracks such as “Belter” and “Sometimes” are the perfect sound track to any summers day, or never ending night out for that matter. The IoW 18 crowd will be bouncing no doubt!
Tom Grennan is the UK’s next ultra star, mark our words. His music is infectious and personality wise, the Bedford born star is one of the nicest people in the business. Don’t believe us? Let his music do the talking.
“Sober” is a beautiful escape into the truths of reality, though it is now notable tracks such as “Praying” and “Something In The Water” which will transfix the Isle of Wight crowd most.
