Playing: Main Stage

Rivetingly charismatic, menacingly serpentine and possessed of an almost shamanic intensity, Richard Ashcroft embraces and articulates the anthemic fervour of rock’n’roll with a power and eloquence unparalleled by any of his contemporaries. His fifth solo studio album and most recent body of work, Natural Rebel, represents the latest chapter in a hugely successful solo career for the former Verve frontman and Ivor Novello winner, and debuted at number 4 in the UK Album charts. He delighted fans with a surprise support slot at Liam Gallagher’s Finsbury Park show in 2018, and will grace The Isle of Wight Festival stage this summer.
