Biffy Clyro will headline the Friday night of next year's Isle of Wight Festival with organisers saying the Scottish trio are appearing as an English festival exclusive.

Also confirmed for Friday is DJ Calvin Harris, who will be closing the night after Biffy's headlining set, with special guests Rudimental completing the acts announced for the main stage on Friday.

Passenger, The 1975, and The Waterboys round up the first names for the festival which returns for a 13th year, taking place from Thursday 12th until Sunday 15th June 2014, and will offer top rock and indie names, legendary acts, and rising stars, on four main stages, and six smaller stages in a relaxed festival atmosphere.

Simon Neil from Biffy Clyro said: “We are over the moon to announce that we will headline the Main Stage of the Isle of Wight Festival next year, on Friday June 13th. To follow the likes of Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Bob Dylan and Pearl Jam is an honour. We cannot wait to get back to this iconic Festival, and this beautiful island!

John Giddings, the festival’s promoter said: “Friday night is going to kick it out of the park with Biffy & Calvin and special guests Rudimental - I can't wait.... having Passenger and The 1975 already on board we’re set for one of our most contemporary years - with the class of The Waterboys complementing the young guns nicely....”
