Rod Stewart has been confirmed as the second headliner for next summer’s Isle Of Wight Festival, closing the four-day event on Sunday 11th June.

Joining the previously-announced Arcade Fire (who will headline on Saturday 10th June), the 71 year-old’s appointment will mark his only 2017 festival appearance, counting himself out of a rumoured Glastonbury performance a fortnight later.

Of the news, Isle of Wight Festival promoter John Giddings said: “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.”

Isle of Wight Festival will be announcing more acts over the coming months; in the meantime, tickets for next year’s event, which runs from 8-11th June, are onsale now direct from Ticketmaster:
