"To be given the chance to play such an iconic UK festival is huge and we're really looking forward to it."
And festival organiser John Giddings added: "The Isle of Wight Festival has always been known for its variety in music and this year is no different. To have the world's first and most inspiring hip hop group headlining alongside one of the world's biggest electronic DJ's is fantastic.
