Festival’s Saturday headliners named

Stereophonics' Kelly Jones and Razorlight's Johnny Borrell.

THE Stereophonics and Razorlight will close the Saturday night at this year’s Isle of Wight Festival.

The double header was announced early this morning (Tuesday).

Welsh rockers The Stereophonics, known for songs such as Maybe Tomorrow and The Bartender and the Thief, headlined the Friday night of the festival in 2004, while Razorlight played in 2005.

The acts will feature alongside Friday headliner The Prodigy.

The Isle of Wight Festival takes place at Seaclose Park on June 12, 13 and 14.

It is the Stereophonics’ only UK festival date this year.

John Giddings, Isle of Wight Festival promoter, told Isle of Wight Radio people had been asking for guitar bands and he had come up with two he was delighted to have back.

He added 35,000 tickets had already been sold.
