Fleetwood Mac will headline The Isle of Wight Festival 2015, the festival announced today (1 December). It will be the band’s first-ever appearance at the festival.
“We’ve always wanted to come to the UK to play The Isle of Wight Festival, and so we are delighted that in 2015, we are finally making it happen,” the band said in a statement. “So many of our fellow artists and friends have played at this historic event over the years, and we can’t wait to see all of our fans on the island next summer.”
“It’s no secret that Fleetwood Mac have been on my wish list for The Isle of Wight Festival for some time now, so I’m very pleased and extremely proud to have them headline next year’s event,” said Isle of Wight organizer John Giddings. “With Christine now back in the band too, it is going to be a momentous occasion, a moment in music history.”
The Isle of Wight Festival, now in its 14th year, offers 12 stages of live music over the weekend – including Main Stage headliners, acoustic sets, DJ performances and up-and-coming talent – alongside additional entertainment and activities such as the Bohemian Woods, Intoxicated Tea Rooms and Hipshaker.
The Isle of Wight Festival 2015 will take place on 11-14 June at Seaclose Park, Newport, Isle of Wight. A full range of ticket, travel, camping and accommodation options are available for The Isle of Wight Festival from www.isleofwightfestival.com.
