Isle of Wight festival organiser John Giddings has hinted that Kings of Leon, Blur and Depeche Mode would be his favourites to headline the event in 2014.

Speaking to festival-goers on Twitter, the promoter re-tweeted a number of suggestions for potential headliners for annual event.

He then tweeted: "Right ?@KingsOfLeon ?@blurofficial ?@depechemode let's get them all ..." adding that he would also like Travis to make another appearance, "P.S ?@franhealy come back...?@IsleOfWightFest."

The Stone Roses, The Killers and Bon Jovi headlined the Isle of Wight Festival 2013, which took place on the island's Seaclose Park between June 14 and 16. Bloc Party, Paul Weller, Palma Violets, Everything Everything, Happy Mondays and Example also appeared across the weekend, in addition to an array of cabaret and entertainment tents.

Speaking about the line-up last year, Giddings said: "Everywhere I go people tell me we've got an incredible line-up and I think, six months ago we booked Bastille and Kodaline and now they're fantastic. You book acts hoping they'll come through and you know how big The Killers and Bon Jovi are already, but bigging up groups for the future is what it's all about."
