Red Hot Chili Peppers have signed on to headline the second night of the 2014 Isle of Wight Festival in southern England on Saturday, June 14. The performance will mark the first time the group has ever taken the main stage at the musical extravaganza, as well being the band's first major festival appearance in the country since 2007.
"To headline the Isle of Wight Festival is a once in a lifetime opportunity, following in the footsteps of Jimi Hendrix and The Doors ,” said the band in joint statement. “When we were offered the slot, we jumped at the chance…it will be our only show in the U.K./Ireland this year…so we intend to make it really special."
The Isle of Wight Festival will also feature performances by Biffy Clyro and The 1975 . A headliner for the third day of the event has yet to be revealed. For more information about the fest, visit IsleofWightFestival.com .
