Red Hot Chili Peppers to headline Isle of Wight Festival

UK Red Hot Chili Peppers will headline this year’s Isle of Wight Festival on 14 June.

This will be their only show of 2014 in the UK.

Red Hot Chili Peppers said: “To headline the Isle of Wight Festival is a once in a lifetime opportunity, following in the footsteps of Jimi Hendrix and The Doors. When we were offered the slot, we jumped at the chance…it will be our only show in the UK/Ireland this year…so we intend to make it really special.”

John Giddings, the Festival’s promoter said: “Finally – we’ve got them! One of the most exciting rock bands of the modern era come to visit… and judging by the performances I have seen previously, will be a highlight in the music history of the festival…Rock the Wight!”
