Simon Neil - Biffy Clyro to headline at Isle of Wight 2014

Biffy Clyro is to headline at the Isle of Wight festival next year.

The Scottish rock band - made up of Simon Neil, James Johnston and Ben Johnston - will take to the stage for a performance on the opening night of the three-day weekend festival on June 13, 2014.

Frontman Simon said: ''We are over the moon to announce that we will headline the Main Stage of the Isle of Wight Festival next year, on Friday June 13. To follow the likes of Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Bob Dylan and Pearl Jam is an honour. We cannot wait to get back to this iconic Festival, and this beautiful island!''

Meanwhile, Calvin Harris, Rudimental and Passenger will also grace the stage with performances and show organisers are confident the 2014 festival will be one of their ''most contemporary years'' yet.

John Giddings, the festival's promoter, added: ''Friday night is going to kick it out of the park with Biffy and Calvin and special guests Rudimental - I can't wait.... having Passenger and The 1975 already on board we're set for one of our most contemporary years - with the class of The Waterboys complementing the young guns nicely....''

The Isle of Wight festival 2014 will take place between the 12 and 15 June, with the first set of tickets going on sale on Thursday (12.12.13).
