Busted, Twin Atlantic and Sigma have joined the lineup for the Isle of Wight Festival 2016

Busted will be joined by Twin Atlantic and Sigma on the lineup for the Isle of Wight Festival in 2016.

One of the biggest comeback announcements of 2015 was the pop/rock trio - consisting of Charlie Simpson, James Bourne and Matt Willis - and the band have promised their festival set will be as "epic" as ever before.

In a statement, Busted said: "It's an honour to be performing at the Isle of Wight Festival, so many incredible artists have played it - The Who, Hendrix, you name it! Some of our favourite live memories have been at festivals, and we're looking forward to making Busted's set as epic as we can!"

2015 has also been a phenomenal year for Scottish indie rockers Twin Atlantic and they have promised to share some new music when they perform.

Frontman, Sam McTrusty said: "We are Really looking forward to playing at a festival that has hosted so many legendary bands/acts over the years from its beginnings way back in the sixties. It's rare that we get to make a debut appearance at a festival on UK soil of late, so this one will feel more exciting and memorable than usual. There's nothing like playing brand new music in a new place. Set to be one of the highlights of our summer."

Drum 'n' Bass duo Sigma will also bring their beats to the dance tent and are thrilled to be a part of the iconic weekender.

They said: "The Isle of Wight Festival has so much history and some legendary moments in music have happened there. It's an honour to be playing such a great festival and we can't wait for the summer to begin."

The trio join previously announced punk acts Iggy Pop, Adam Ant, The Dammed and pop acts Queen + Adam Lambert, Welsh rockers Stereophonics, Jess Glynne and much more at the prestigious festival.

The Isle of Wight Festival takes place the weekend of June 9 - 12 2016.
