STATUS Quo, The Cribs, Ocean Colour Scene, The Kills and Mike and Mechanics have joined the Isle of Wight Festival 2016 bill.

They will be joining the likes of Queen + Adam Lambert, Stereophonics, Faithless, Iggy Pop, Twin Atlantic, Busted, Jess Glynne, Sigma and The Corrs at the Isle of Wight Festival in June.

It could be one of the last chance for Status Quo fans to see the band in action, after they announced plans to retire their 'electric set’ following their latest tour.

Ocean Colour Scene will be marking the 20th anniversary of their album Moseley Shoals, by performing it in its entirety, including the hits The Day We Caught The Train, The Riverboat Song and Hundred Mile High City.

Rockers The Kills will arrive on the Isle of Wight having played Coachella Festival in the US, while Mike and the Mechanics will be returning to the Island with a line-up including Genesis co-founder Mike Rutherford.
