Red Hot Chili Peppers

Playing their first UK festival in seven years, Anthony Kiedis and co. spoke of their admiration for the Isle of Wight Festival and its legendary history ahead of their performance, and from the glowing reviews it looks like their newly-earnt place in the festival's history books is safe.


Kings Of Leon

This live cut from their sixth studio album, 'Mechanical Bull', shows the Followills back on top form as they return to play the island festival for the second time - this time closing the Sunday night on the main stage.


Biffy Clyro

Not content with having just the one Friday night headliner, Isle of Wight Festival organisers brought in a special Scottish pairing to co-headline the first full day of live music at the festival. Biffy were still clearly riding the wave of goodwill they experienced in 2013, when their double album 'Opposites' went straight to the top of the charts, in a blaze of hot reviews.


Calvin Harris

The second half of that special Friday night pairing, Calvin Harris hit the late night slot with an almost endless fanfare of fireworks and bottomless bag of his trademark dance anthems.

Fall Out Boy

Bridging that sizeable gap between the Download and Isle of Wight Festival crowds, Fall Out Boy got to play both festivals over the one weekend. The result: bubblegum-pop-punk carnage.

The Specials

The best thing to come out of Coventry since Philip Larkin, The Specials were a refreshing blast of socially-aware ska and two-tone music in the depression-hit Britain of the late seventies. Now sounding as vital and revitalising as ever, Terry Hall led the original gang at the Isle of Wight - minus Neville Staple and Jerry Dammers - through a main stage set of unforgettable hits.


Ella Eyre

This 20-year-old singer and songwriter from London has been branded the hottest emerging name in the UK pop scene as she begins to unveil her latest solo work, which follows high-profile collaborations with the likes of Rudimental, Naughty Boy and Tinie Tempah.

Boy George

One of the original New Romantic icons, Boy George has certainly enjoyed a varied career with its generous share of highs and widely-publicised lows. Thankfully, now in his fifties, the singer and songwriter seems to have found some stability in his private life and has been enjoying a professional reinassence in recent years, with his first album of original material, 'This Is What I Do', was released last year to widespread critical acclaim.
