The Strokes & Jay-Z Announce To Headline Isle of Wright Festival

After talking about the band heading to the studio earlier today a good sign has come that this will probably lead to something. The band was announced to be headlining this year’s Isle of Wright Festival along with fellow New Yorker Jay-Z. The festival is set to take place from Friday June 11 to Sunday June 13. The band have not played live since 2006 and have already announced that they will be in the studio this January. The organizer for the festival John Giddings said: “Ever since I heard the first Strokes album, I’ve wanted them for the Isle of Wight. Jay-Z and Pink are two of the best live acts I have ever seen and the Blondie hits speak for themselves. I can’t wait.” Other acts playing the festival include Blondie, Orbital and Pink.
