Kings Of Leon are set to play a headline slot at next year’s Isle Of Wight Festival – their only UK festival appearance of 2011.
The band will play the Friday night (June 10) of the three-day event, which runs from June 10-12, with festival chief John Giddings saying that it would be their only festival appearance in the country next year.
They are the first act announced to play the event, with more expected to be revealed this week (beginning November 15). Last year Jay-Z, The Strokes and Paul McCartney headlined the festival.
