Singer will choose acts for the festival Big Top this Summer

The Charlatans’ frontman Tim Burgess will curate the Big Top stage at this year’s Isle Of Wight Festival.

The Charlatans will headline the stage on Sunday June 14 with Burgess handpicking the other acts on the bill.

“I have already approached quite a few impressive new bands, some you will know, some you might not,” said the singer. “The Isle of Wight Festival is a special festival to me so all up and coming bands, be on the look out – you could be taking the stage at The Isle of Wight.”

The Isle of Wight Festival takes place June 12 – 14 at Seaclose Park, Newport, The Isle Of Wight, other acts confirmed so far include The Prodigy and Basement Jaxx, and tickets are on sale now.
