‘To follow the likes of Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Bob Dylan and Pearl Jam is an honour.

‘We cannot wait to get back to this iconic Festival, and this beautiful island.’

Festival promoter John Giddings said: ‘Friday night is going to kick it out of the park with Biffy and Calvin and special guests Rudimental.

‘I can’t wait. Having Passenger and The 1975 already on board, we’re set for one of our most contemporary years - with the class of The Waterboys complementing the young guns nicely.’
