Isle of Wight Headliners

The Isle of Wight Festival which takes place at Seaclose Park on The Isle of Wight from Thursday 15th - Sunday 18th June has announced the first wave of artists for 2023, including headliners: Pulp, George Ezra, The Chemical Brothers, and Robbie Williams.

Widely regarded as one of the most influential British bands of all time, Britpop legends Pulp will play the festival for the first time in 12 years. After sending fans into a frenzy with a cryptic Instagram post in July, Jarvis subsequently confirmed live shows were on the horizon. The band will headline the festival’s Main Stage on Friday night.

George Ezra headlines on Saturday night with his brand of infectious, sunshine-pop, including festival anthems “Budapest”, “Shotgun”, “Green Green Grass” and “Paradise”. Closing the Main Stage on Saturday are The Chemical Brothers, a duo who redefined the concept of live electronic music, bagged six UK Number 1 albums, four GRAMMY wins and a reputation for a transcendent live experience. 

In a UK festival exclusive, Robbie Williams will make his Isle of Wight Festival debut and bring proceedings on the Main Stage to a close on Sunday night. His high-octane live show and unmatched showmanship.

Robbie Williams said:

There is something magic about a British festival…us Brits know how to bring the energy. I am thrilled to be headlining the iconic Isle of Wight Festival, it’s a real honour. I can’t wait.

Other artists set to appear on the main stage include Blondie, performing their greatest hits from their career spanning over 40 years. British girl group Sugababes and  Sophie Ellis-Bextor will delight the crowd with pop hits and dancefloor.

Playing the Big Top on Thursday night are Groove Armada, with a DJ set packed with their much-loved dance hits to kick off the weekend with a bang, Eighties electropop pioneers Human League will top the bill on Friday, with Welsh royalty Manic Street Preachers will close the Big Top on Sunday night. After playing a packed out Big Top in 2021, Example will return to the island for another electrifying performance.

Festival promoter John Giddings said:

We’re thrilled to announce this line-up today and welcome truly iconic artists to the island in June. From era-defining bands and electric live performers, to chart toppers and fresh new talent, the Isle of Wight Festival line-up showcases an exciting array of talent spanning 40 years of music.
