It is hoped that as many of last year’s proposed artists will return to the 2021 line-up, which is yet to be officially confirmed.

The event has been running for more than 50 years, featuring world-class performers such as Liam Gallagher, Bruce Springsteen and Stereophonics.

Last year's line-up included Lewis Capaldi, Snow Patrol and the Black Eyed Peas as headline acts.

Tickets for this year’s Isle of Wight Festival are on sale at isleofwightfestival.com/tickets.
