ELBOW, Biffy Clyro and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds have all been added to the Isle of Wight Festival line-up as special guests.

Festival organisers are yet to announce the headliners for Friday and Saturday night, though Elbow have been revealed for Friday’s bill and Biffy Clyro for Saturday’s.

Noel Gallagher and his new band will be appearing as special guests of Sunday night’s headliner, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band.

Also performing at the festival in Seaclose Park, Newport, will be Example, Noah & The Whale, The Vaccines, The Christians and Madness.

Madness frontman, Suggs, said: ‘We’ve been wanting to play the Isle of Wight Festival for ages now. It’s the perfect way to start our summer.’

As well as the first two main stage headliners, acts for the June 22 to 24 festival’s other two stages are also still to be announced.
