Band to join Kings Of Leon at June event

Pulp are set to play next year’s Isle Of Wight Festival.

The band, who announced their reformation last week (November 8), will play the Saturday night (June 11) of the event before that night’s headliners – yet to be announced. The festival runs from June 10-12.

Kings Of Leon were announced as Friday night headliners yesterday. Last year Jay-Z, The Strokes and Paul McCartney headlined.

Pulp, who last played in December 2002, will headline Barcelona‘s Primavera Sound Festival on May 27 and the Wireless Festival in London‘s Hyde Park on July 3.

Tickets for the Isle Of Wight Festival go on sale at 9am (GMT) on Friday. See Isleofwightfestival.com for more information.
