The Who To Headline The Isle Of Wight Festival

(Classic Rock) The Who have been confirmed as Saturday night headliners for the Isle Of Wight Festival 2016. They join Queen, Stereophonics and Faithless in headlining this year's event, which runs from June 9-12 at Seaclose Park in Newport.

Richard Aschroft, formerly of The Verve, will join The Who as a special guest for their only UK festival appearance of the year. It'll mark The Who's fourth appearance at the Isle Of Wight Festival, following their performances there in 1969, 1970 and 2004.

Festival organizer John Giddings says: "The Who are part of the fabric of the Isle of Wight Festival, and it's great to welcome them back to the island as part of their ongoing 50th anniversary celebrations." Read more here.
