Rod Stewart to headline Isle of Wight Festival 2017

Rod Stewart will headline the Sunday at Isle Of Wight Festival 2017, in a UK festival exclusive.

He follows Queen + Adam Lambert, and Fleetwood Mac, in the coveted closing spot.

“I have been very lucky to have played many of the world’s finest venues and festivals – but never played the legendary Isle Of Wight Festival,” Stewart announces. “I am so excited to put that right. June can’t come round soon enough.”

Stewart is promising a blend of new and old, with likely appearances by fan favourites Maggie May, Da Ya Think I’m Sexy, Baby Jane, The First Cut Is The Deepest and I Don’t Want to Talk About It.

“I’ve wanted Rod Stewart to play at the festival for a number of years – he’s an incredible icon with a career that’s spanned over five decades so it’s impossible to not be a fan,” says Isle of Wight Festival Promoter, John Giddings. “On Sunday night he’ll bring an incredible energy to create an unforgettable moment.”

Stewart joins the already confirmed Arcade Fire at the festival, running from 8 to 11 June 2017 at Seaclose Park, Newport.
