The Isle of Wight Festival has announced its first headline act for 2013 as The Stone Roses - a UK festival exclusive.
The Manchester band will take to the event’s main stage on Friday, June 14 in their only festival appearance of next year – and their first at the Isle of Wight Festival.
“When you talk about the soundtrack of our lives, The Stone Roses are embedded in it,” said Isle of Wight Festival promoter John Giddings.
“I am so proud to get them to our island - they will kick the weekend off with a bang.”
Tickets for next year’s event go on sale on Wednesday 28th November from www.isleofwightfestival.com.
Vodafone customers will have an exclusive 48-hour presale from today.
