Red Hot Chili Peppers' Saturday (June 14) night headline performance will be their only show in UK & Ireland this year, making it a rare chance to hear some of their funky musical highlights from the last three decades.

Anthony Kiedis, Flea, Chad Smith and relative newcomer Josh Klinghoffer will make their first festival appearence in the UK since Reading and Leeds Festival 2007, at the same time as they work on their eleventh studio album, due out by the end of the year. The band were recently announced as performers at the Super Bowl XLVIII halftime show on February 2 2014.

Red Hot Chili Peppers said: "To headline the Isle of Wight Festival is a once in a lifetime opportunity, following in the footsteps of Jimi Hendrix and The Doors. When we were offered the slot, we jumped at the chance. It will be our only show in the UK/Ireland this year so we intend to make it really special."
 
Isle of Wight Festival takes place from 12-15 June at Seaclose Park, Newport on the island and will celebrate its 12th anniversary in 2014 after the original event, held 1968-1970, was revived in 2002.

Biffy Clyro, Calvin Harris, Rudimental, Passenger, The 1975 and The Waterboys have all previously been announced to play the festival this June, with the third and final headliner for Sunday night of the festival (June 15) still to be announced.
