As predicted by Virtual Festivals, Foo Fighters will headline the Saturday (11 June) night of the Isle Of Wight Festival 2011 line-up, with the event set to return to Seaclose Park, Newport from 10-12 June.
It will be the first UK festival the American rockers have played since V Festival back in 2007.
Speaking about the announcement, John Giddings, the Festival’s promoter, said: “What band is more fitting to bring back for our tenth birthday than the Foos? They gave it their all in 2006 and have only become bigger and better since”.
They join a bill that boasts Kings Of Leon as Friday (10 June) headliners, a reformed Pulp on the Saturday and the first UK festival appearance from The British Pink Floyd Show.
Other rumours for the final bill-toppers, who are set to be revealed tomorrow morning, include Red Hot Chili Peppers and Kasabian.
