George Ezra said: ‘It’s been less than 18 months since I was last at The Isle of Wight Festival, but it already seems like a world away. In the time since, my second album Staying At Tamara’s has been released and I’ve taken these songs around the world and back. It’s going to be brilliant to return to the beautiful Isle and play those new songs to an audience that has now heard the record. I’m extremely flattered to have been asked to headline and can’t wait to get up and play. See you soon!’
Last year Isle of Wight festival celebrated its 50th Anniversary. The first festivals in 1968, 1969 and 1970 put it on the map and enjoyed iconic performances from artists such as The Doors, The Who and Jimi Hendrix. The festival was successfully relaunched in 2002 to become the first major festival in the UK calendar, and one of the most exciting weekends of the summer.
