Isle of Wight Festival announces 2017 Saturday night headliners

The Isle of Wight Festival announced today that Arcade Fire are the first headline act for 2017! The much-coveted appearance is set for Saturday June 10th and will be their only UK festival of the Summer and their first UK festival performance since 2014. The Canadian band released their fourth studio album ‘Reflektor’ in October 2013 to widespread critical acclaim, debuting at #1 in both the U.K. and U.S. and topping the iTunes charts in 40 countries. 'Reflektor' was hailed as one of the Top 10 albums of 2013 by NME, Rolling Stone, Stereogum, Pitchfork among others, and received two Grammy Award nominations as well as a nomination for the prestigious Polaris Music Prize.

Isle of Wight Festival Promoter, John Giddings, said:
I’m so happy to have secured Arcade Fire as our first headliner. David Bowie recommended them and I’ve been a fan ever since. Last year was an incredible year and I’m ready for us to come back even better in 2017.

The Isle of Wight Festival takes place from 8th - 11th June at Seaclose Park, Newport with Early Bird Tickets on sale from today. Due to popular demand, 2017 sees the return of Day Tickets in addition to Weekend Tickets.

For a VIP festival experience exclusive glamping options are also on sale. Eve’s Tipis offer a luxury stay with a cocktail bar and hot breakfast options to kickstart your day. The much loved colourful Podpads will also be returning which include a power point to keep your phone charged throughout the weekend. Love Your Tent and Pink Moon Camping also offer unique camping experiences for a weekend in style.

2017 will be the 16th Isle of Wight Festival since it was successfully relaunched in 2002 to become one of the most exciting weekends of the summer, with a proud heritage of show-stopping headliners such as Foo Fighters, The Rolling Stones, The Killers, Paul McCartney, Coldplay, Blur and Fleetwood Mac.
