Rod Stewart will join Arcade Fire in headlining the Isle of Wight Festival next year at Seaclose Park on the Isle of Wight Festival as a UK festival exclusive.
The festival which offers top rock and indie names, legendary acts, and rising stars, on a large main stage, smaller tented stage, and smaller stages in a relaxed festival atmosphere returns for a 16th year from Thursday 8th until Sunday 11th June 2017.
Rod will top the bill on the Sunday night of the festival - following Queen + Adam Lambert last year, and Fleetwood Mac the year before. He will be bringing his live show to the festival for the first time, performing a set of both classics and new hits spanning five decades including 'Maggie May', 'Da Ya Think I'm Sexy', 'Baby Jane', 'The First Cut is the Deepest' and 'I Don’t Want to Talk About It', and tracks from his recently released album 'Another Country'.
The first act announced for the festival's multiple stages was Saturday headliner Arcade Fire also making a UK exclusive appearance.
Rod Stewart said, "I have been very lucky to have played many of the world's finest venues and festivals - but never played the legendary IOW Festival. I am so excited to put that right. June can't come round soon enough."
Isle of Wight Festival Promoter, John Giddings, added, "I've wanted Rod Stewart to play at the festival for a number of years - he’s an incredible icon with a career that’s spanned over five decades so it’s impossible to not be a fan. On Sunday night he’ll bring an incredible energy to create an unforgettable moment."
