The One...The Only...The Stone Roses



Famed around the globe for being a spectacular weekend of music and excitement, the Isle of Wight Festival 2013 is proud to announce one of the UK's most iconic bands The Stone Roses, as Main Stage headliners on Friday 14th June. This will be the band's only UK festival appearance in 2013. Don't miss out on your chance to see this genre-defining band, at next year's legendary Festival. Tickets for what will be an unbelievable experience go on sale on Wednesday 28th November. Vodafone customers will have an exclusive 48-hour presale from today.

2012 saw the eagerly anticipated return of The Stone Roses, one of the most critically acclaimed acts of all time. The phenomenal four-piece re-arrived in spectacular style and with a summer of sold out shows, the Manchester band mesmerised one million fans across Europe and Asia. Now, the classic line-up of Ian Brown, John Squire, Mani (aka Gary Mounfield) and Reni (aka Alan Wren) will bring their epic live performance to the Isle of Wight Festival for the very first time.

John Giddings, the Festival's promoter, says:
"When you talk about the soundtrack of our lives, the Stone Roses are embedded in it. I am so proud to get them to our island- they will kick the weekend off with a bang."
