Chilis add spice to Isle of Wight Festival

Anthony Kiedis led headliners Red Hot Chili Peppers at the Isle of Wight Festival on Saturday night.

AMERICAN rock legends Red Hot Chili Peppers showed their class at the Isle of Wight Festival on Saturday night.

The band have been on the top of many festival-goers' wish lists for years and they were not disappointed with a set full of Chili classics, including Give It Away, Don't Stop, Californication, and more. 

Earlier, Ska fans rejoiced in an hour-long extravaganza by The Specials, and those thinking they weren't familiar with the band's work before, realised just how many excellent songs they released. 

Continuing a highly eclectic running order, The 1975 went down a storm with their indie rock style, while John Newman's catchy tunes and busy feet had everyone entertained. 

Another huge hit were The Waterboys, whose folk and blues sound fitted in perfectly with the afternoon sunshine.

The Big Top was the place for dance music, with top producers Duke Dumont and Clean Bandit bringing the party.

Today (Sunday), the festival concludes with Tennessee rockers Kings of Leon.
