Isle of Wight Festival 2016 adds Stereophonics and Faithless

Stereophonics and Faithless have just been confirmed to co-headline Friday night at Isle of Wight Festival 2016.


They join Queen + Adam Lambert on next summer’s line-up, taking place between 9 – 12 June 2016.

Festival promoter John Giddings said: “We are delighted to welcome Stereophonics and Faithless back to The Isle of Wight Festival to co-headline the Friday night. Stereophonics continue to prove they are still on top with a new No. 1 album and they are absolutely brilliant live.

“Likewise Faithless, who are currently celebrating their 20th year, have had hit after hit, and I know the crowds at the festival are going to go crazy when they bring their live set up to the Friday night. Looking forward to catching their sets!”

Stereophonics’ Kelly Jones added: “I love playing the Isle Of Wight Festival. I got to steer the boat over last time. Captain of the ship and honked the horn!  Only the captain gets to honk the horn. This will be our third time at the festival… I’ll leave my white suit at home this time though!”

While Faithless said: “We cant wait to return to play such an iconic festival for the second time. We were proud to be part of its relaunch in 2005 and it’s an absolute pleasure to be invited back.”
