Canadian indie-rockers Aracde Fire have been confirmed as the first headlining act for the Isle of Wight Festival 2017, topping the bill on the Saturday night.
Their appearance at the festival will mark their first festival appearance since 2014 and will be their only UK festival performance of 2017.
Festival organiser John Giddings said, “I’m so happy to have secured Arcade Fire as our first headliner. David Bowie recommended them and I’ve been a fan ever since. Last year was an incredible year and I’m ready for us to come back even better in 2017.”
Tickets have also gone on sale for the festival this morning, with revellers now being able to buy day tickets and Island resident tickets. These can be purchased here.
Make sure you stay tuned for more line-up announcements in the near future.
