English rock band Pulp, Budapest Singer George Ezra, English electronic music duo The Chemical Brothers and English singer-songwriter Robbie Williams are all set to lead the 2023 annual UK music festival called the Isle of Wight.
Taking place in Newport, the capital of the Isle of Wight, an island off the south coast of England, the event was born out of a counterculture experiment from 1968 to 1970. The year next in 2023, the festival begins on June 15 and runs until June 18.
Back in 2022, the island’s music festival also featured English rock bands, Muse, Kasabian and Scottish singer-songwriter, Lewis Capaldi headlining after its 2021 edition was stalled in due to prolonged Covid-19 restrictions. The following year, the festival was held at Seaclose Park, the significant park site located on the northeast side of Newport on the island along the eastern banks of the Medina River. The list of performers and musicians includes alternative and indie rock bands, The Courteeners, Debbie Harry’s punk rock band, Blondie and Welsh rock band, Manic Street Preachers, popularly known as Manics among d other artists.
As part of their long 2023 reunion tour, Pulp will lead the first full day of the Isle of Wight Music Festival 2023 on Friday 16th June. Earlier in the summer in July this year, the indie rock band’s founder, frontman, lyricist and only cohesive member, Javis Cocker had proclaimed that the band would set off on a journey in 2023 for their first gigs together since 2012.
The Britpop artists confirmed their reunion tour dates last week by making headlines at Henham Park’s annual music carnival called The Latitude Festival and Glasgow’s TRNSMT music festival. At the Latitude music festival, the group will be joined by Scottish blues musician, Paolo Nutini, and on the other hand, TRNSMT will feature the Begin singer, Sam Fender in addition to English pop group, The 1975. The TRNSMT festival will return to Glasgow Green from July 7-9 next year, featuring Kasabian, George Ezra, English rock duo called The Royal Blood, the British rapper, Aitch and more.
