Stereophonics and Faithless have been announced as the latest headliners of 2016’s Isle of Wight Festival . The two acts will co- headline on Friday June 10 and join Queen on the bill following the announcement that they will top the bill of the festival on Sunday June 12.

They said: "We're hugely honoured to play at the Isle of Wight Festival. It's kind of a big deal Jimi Hendrix played in the 70's, 50 years on and we're playing it!

"That's pretty phenomenal, thanks for having us back! We promise Friday night will be the one!"

Meanwhile, further names have been confirmed with Blossoms, The Script, James Bay and Van Morrison all part of the first announcement.

Isle of Wight Festival promoter John Giddings described the milestone as a "special year" for the event, which he revived in 2002 more than 30 years after the Isle of Wight County Council Act 1971 prevented 'overnight open-air gatherings of more than 5,000 people' without a special licence from the council.

He said: "This year's line-up brings together the best bands of the moment.

"This is a special year as it celebrates 50 years since the festival's first incarnation so it's fantastic to celebrate with returning artists and those appearing for the first time."
