Isle of Wight Festival: Kings close the show

KINGS of Leon closed the Isle of Wight Festival in style last night (Sunday).

The US band had the masses jumping for an hour and a half with a set packed full of their biggest hits, finishing with the anthem Sex On Fire.

There was music to satisfy every taste throughout the day. Punk rockers Fall Out Boy were a huge success, as was an acoustic set by Passenger, who won over the crowd with his humility and humour as well as his talent.

The Move were an early hit, bringing their sounds from the 1960s and 1970s, as was new talent Ella Eyre.

Meanwhile, in the Big Top, Travis closed proceedings with a massively popular set, lead singer Fran Healy sporting a bushy beard and at one point, singing from within the crowd.

The entertainment was not just on stage, with the Red Arrows performing overhead in the afternoon.
