The most controversial Glastonbury headliner in history is due to the return to the UK festival circuit to headline next year’s Isle of Wight Festival.

The Hip-hop legend will also be joined by fellow New Yorker’s The Strokes

The festival, which runs from Friday June 11-13, will also feature performances from Pink, Orbital and Blondie.

Jay-Z will headline the opening night of the festival, while The Strokes will close the main stage on the second day.

Organiser John Giddings said: “Ever since I heard the first Strokes album, I’ve wanted them for the Isle of Wight.

“Jay-Z and Pink are two of the best live acts I have ever seen and the Blondie hits speak for themselves. I can’t wait.”

The ninth edition of the festival, which takes place on Seaclose Park, will also feature Squeeze.

Tickets for the event go on sale on Friday (December 4).
