Jessie J, The Pretenders and Natalie Imbruglia set for Isle of Wight Festival


Jessie J, The Pretenders and Natalie Imbruglia have been added to the lineup for Barclaycard presents The Isle of Wight Festival.

The legendary festival returns to Seaclose Park in Newport between June 20 and 23, and the already stacked bill just got even bigger.

As well as the ‘Price Tag’ hitmaker, Chrissie Hynde and co and the ‘Torn’ singer, former Smiths rocker Johnny Marr, ‘Buck Rogers’ hitmakers Feeder, pop group S Club, and former Kasabian frontman Tom Meighan are among the new additions.

Plus, Viral sensations Cian Ducrot and Caity Baser and indie rockers Wunderhorse.

They join previously confirmed headliners The Prodigy, Pet Shop Boys and Green Day.

The Streets, Keane, Simple Minds, Suede, Scouting For Girls, Blossoms, Nothing But Thieves, Crowded House, The Darkness, and more were also announced in the first announcement.

Meanwhile, headliners Pet Shop Boys just shared their latest single, ‘Loneliness’, from their upcoming album, ‘Nonetheless’.

The ‘West End Girls’ duo – comprising Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe – returned to using an orchestra for their upcoming James Ford-produced collection, which is due out on April 26, and is a follow-up to 2020’s ‘Hotspot’.

Premiering the new single on the BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show with Zoe Ball last week, Neil said: “When we made it, it was written, a lot of it was written, during lockdown. So, we wrote a tonne of songs. And more or less every track, in fact, every track, has got an orchestra on it, but it’s not like an orchestra album. It’s a very melodic sort of album, our last three albums have been strictly electronic and this one we’ve gone back to using an orchestra but also, of course, with electronics.”
