Yungblud and Friendly Fires added to Isle of Wight Festival 2019 lineup

The British summer staple will kick off on June 13 with a host of international stars taking to the stage across the weekend.

This year Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, George Ezra and Biffy Clyro will headline the festival.

Meanwhile, the likes of Lily Allen, Bastile and Anne-Marie will all perform over the weekend.

Fresh from supporting Spice Girls on their UK stadium tour, Jess Glynne will play the main stage on Sunday June 16.

Now Friendly Fires and Yungblud have been added to the lineup as last minute additions.

Friendly Fires will replace Cage the Elephant on Saturday in the Big Top after the band were forced to pull out of all upcoming shows due to guitarist Nick Bockrath injuring his leg.

Yungblud, who is dating American singer Halsey, will replace Sam Fender who has dropped out due to illness.

Despite the island being battered by rain in recent days, the current forecast predicts three dry days at the site.

For those concerned about last minute FOMO [fear of missing out], weekend and day tickets are still available from the official Isle of Wight website.

Meanwhile, those who are looking for the ultimate VIP experience can avoid the notorious group rows of putting up a tent by splashing out on a Podpad.

For just a few hundred pounds, music lovers can relax in style in the comfort of their own wooden hut.

Each lockable cabin offers raised beds, fitted sheets, solid wooden floors and carpet as well as solar powered LED lighting and shelves.

For ultimate luxury, Luxpads comes also boast kitted out with duvets, pillows, bed throws, towels, cushions and rugs.

But that’s not all, Podpad guests also benefit from access to private hot showers, fully serviced and cleaned toilets, free phone charging facilities an a Pamper Parlour with hairdryers and straighteners.
