Lewis Capaldi, Lionel Richie, Kasabian, Pete Tong and Muse are the headline acts who will take to the stage at the Isle of Wight festival in 2022.

Nile Rodgers & Chic, Blossoms, Rudimental and Tom Grennan will also perform at the event, which will run from June 16 to 19 next year.

The festival returned to Seaclose Park in 2021 after it was cancelled in 2020 as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
