THE CHARLATANS will headline the Big Top at this year's Isle of Wight Festival — but lead singer Tim Burgess will have an extra role.

Tim will also curate the day's activity by choosing his favourite bands to perform there on Sunday, June 14.

Tim said: "I have already approached quite a few impressive new bands — some you will know, some you might not.

"The Isle of Wight Festival is a special festival to me, so all up-and-coming bands, be on the lookout – you could be taking the stage at The Isle of Wight."

The Charlatans appeared at the revived Isle of Wight Festival in 2002, then again in 2004.

The Prodigy and Basement Jaxx have already been announced for this year's festival bill and further announcements are expected soon.

The festival takes place from June 12 to 14 at Seaclose Park, Newport.
