Jessie J

Jessie J is the latest act to be added to the line-up for this year's Isle of Wight festival.

She will be joined by new additions Kelis, Miles Kane, Magnetic Man, Best Coast, Caro Emerald, Dry the River, Stooshe and The Real D'Co.

Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty are the headliners with Biffy Clyro, Elbow, Noah & The Whale and Example also confirmed.

The festival takes place between 22-24 June at Seaclose Park.

Other acts performing this summer will be The Darkness, Feeder, Professor Green, Tinie Tempah, Wretch 32, Labrinth, The Vaccines, Band of Skulls and Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds.

The date of the festival has been moved from its normal slot in early June to avoid clashing with the Diamond Jubilee and half-term holidays.

The weekend of 22-24 June is traditionally taken by the Glastonbury festival but it is taking a year off in 2012.

Last year's headliners were Foo Fighters, Kings of Leon and Kasabian.

The festival was launched in 1968 and ran for two years before being revived in 2002.
