Red Hot Chili Peppers For Isle Of Wight Festival
The Saturday headline slot will be their only UK performance in 2014.
Saturday 14 June 2014 will see Red Hot Chili Peppers headling the main stage at Isle Of Wight Festival; their first UK festival appearance since 2007.
The band 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.”
John Giddings, the Festival’s promoter added:
“Finally- we’ve got them! One of the most exciting rock bands of the modern era come to visit…and judging by the performances I have seen previously, will be a highlight in the music history of the festival…Rock the Wight!”
They'll join previously announced Friday headliners Biffy Clyro. Isle Of Wight Festival takes place from 12 - 15 June 2014 and tickets are on sale now at planetrock.com/tickets
