Electronic long-timers The Prodigy, who lost vocalist Keith Flint in 2019, will open the headline slots on the Friday night; synth-pop stalwarts Pet Shop Boys will play the Saturday; and, in a UK festival exclusive, Green Day will see out the festival on the Sunday.
Tickets are on general sale from 6 November at 9am via the festival’s site – Barclaycard and Three customers can be first in line with exclusive pre-sale access for 48 hours from today.
Following the recent release of The Darker the Shadow the Brighter the Light, Mike Skinner’s The Streets are also on the billing, as are pop-rockers Scouting For Girls and the Swedish popstar Zara Larsson.
The Brett Anderson-fronted Suede, recently-reformed Keane and Stockport rockers Blossoms – the latter of whom just announced a very special show of their own – will also take to the Isle of Wight festival stages.
Speaking about the first wave of acts announced for the festival, taking place between 20 and 23 June 2024, promoter John Giddings said: “We’re thrilled to announce our 2024 headliners today and to continue to showcase a truly exciting array of talent for next year’s Festival.
“From globally-recognised and pioneering artists, to chart-topping talent and rising stars, we can’t wait to welcome everyone to the island next year. Fans should stay tuned for more news soon!”
