Isle of Wight Festival

A cracking IOW festival looks to be confirmed with the headliners being confirmed for the 1st day. Step forward and take a bow, it's the Prodigy. They will close the festival on June 12th. With a new album in tow, this will be a good time to catch up with Essex' finest and guarantees the audience a fitting end to an always stunning weekend. Their next album is released on Feb 23rd and 5 albums in the band do not look like getting any quieter. It's called "Invaders Must Die"...

Other confirmed acts include the Aussie drum n bass / metal collective, Pendulum.. Brixton's smiley-techno grimesters, Basement Jaxx and the Ting Tings. Great live bands all.
