Only festival gig in the UK this June

TAGS:

The Pixies are to appear at this year’s Isle of Wight Festival, playing just before Sunday headliner Neil Young on June 14.

IOW will be the band’s only festival show in the UK and the event’s promotor John Giddings has commented: “It was hard to think of someone capable of complementing the musical talent of Neil Young but once I had the idea it was blindly obvious and it will surely be a legendary day on the Isle of Wight.”

As well as Neil Young and the Pixies, the festival billing so far includes the likes of The Prodigy, Stereophonics and a stage curated by The Charlatans’ Tim Burgess.
