More acts named for Isle of Wight Festival

Tom Odell will be performing at the Isle of Wight Festival 2014.

SUEDE, Tom Odell and Katy B are among the latest names to be added to this year's IW Festival line-up.

Also among the latest announcements are Boy George, American rockers Fall Out Boy, Anna Calvi and Alison Moyet.

Ella Eyre, The Pretty Reckless, Starsailor, The Struts, Amber Run,The Doors Alive and Inspiral Carpets complete the latest acts named for the Seaclose Park event, which is being headlined by Calvin Harris, Biffy Clyro, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Kings of Leon.

Singer-songwriter Tom Odell revealed a link to the event.

"When I was a bit younger, I used to climb up on a hill near to where I grew up and stare at the Isle of Wight. I remember knowing that a grand music festival was held on the Island every year and I dreamed at some point I would be there, playing.

"That day has come and I am thrilled," he said.

The festival takes place at Seaclose Park from June 12 to 15.

As much as I like the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Fall Out Boy £190 is just not worth it!

bit late with announcements most people I know are spending their hard earned on other festivals, by the way festival forum is still down after weeks, don't think negative comments are liked by the high up.

I agree Tom Odell looks very young Peter. With names such as Katy B and many more the festival should rock!

I know it's my age, but looking at the photo of Tom Odell, does he need a note from his mum to appear ?
