Speaking about the Kings Of Leon booking, festival promoter John Giddings said: "We are proud to bring one of the world's biggest rock bands to the island on our tenth anniversary. It is an incredible way to start the weekend, I can't wait!"

Paul Simon - In The Blue Light (Album Review)
Tue 18 Sep 2018
While Paul Simon may not be as prolific as Bob Dylan (38 solo albums) or Van Morrison (39), he might beat both artists in terms of consistent quality. Records like ‘Rhythm of the Saints’, released in 1990, and 2016’ s ‘Surprise’ often matched the brilliance of his work with Art Garfunkel, but may have been overlooked due to ageism within pop music.

Burton once again on hand, they manage to accomplish a giant leap forward without ever losing sight of who they are.
