It’snever too early to start thinking about 2016 festivals, especially where music royalty is concerned and Isle Of Wight have just announced a set from the ultimate in music royalty. Queen will headline on the Sunday of the festival as their only UK date in 2016. Joined on stage by Adam Lambert, the group have expressed their excitement to grace a festival where the likes of The Who and Jimi Hendrix have previously played with Brian May saying of the announcement “I think Queen at The Isle of Wight Festival is a date that was long overdue. How incredible to take on this challenge at this point in our lives. With an injection of new blood in the shape of the incredible Adam Lambert, Queen will be ready to tear it up on this legendary stage in 2016. Freddie would have loved it. Can’t wait.”. Nor can we, Brian.
