Corden and Horne to play IOW Festival

Comedy duo James Corden and Mathew Horne are set to perform at this year's Isle Of Wight Festival, a tabloid has reported.

However the pair, who shot to fame following the success of the BBC's 'Gavin And Stacy', won't be doing stand-up, instead they will be playing as part of a band.

The stars will be filmed as part of an ITV show ‘We Are Rock Stars’, in which they have just five days to put together a group and rehearse for their performance at the festival.

A source told the News Of The World: "James's experience of fronting music gigs extends to playing the cornet at school, so it should be interesting to say the very least.

"But Matt's a DJ these days so he's got a bit more of an idea.

"They're setting up a band from scratch, which is a hell of a challenge, so the set list is likely to include songs that aren’t too taxing but will get everyone going."

Isle Of Wight Festival 2009 will take place at Seaclose Park, Newport on the Isle Of Wight from 12-14 June.

The Prodigy, Stereophonics, Razorlight and Neil Young are set to headline the event with Basement Jaxx, Pendulum and The Tings Tings also set to perform.

Tickets for this year's event are on sale now priced at £140 for an adult weekend pass with camping or £70 for child camping ticket.

Non-camping passes will set you back £120 for adults and £60 for children.
