Kings Of Leon are to headline the 2011 Isle Of Wight festival.

Celebrating its 10th anniversary next year, the Nashville rockers top the bill at the event which is to take place between 10-12 June.

Festival boss John Giddings said it would be the band's only UK festival appearance of the summer.

Come Around Sundown, the foursome's fifth album, went to number one in the UK album chart when it was released last month.

Reformed Britpop band Pulp have been confirmed as the festival's Saturday night headliners.

Last year's festival was headlined by The Strokes, Jay-Z and Paul McCartney.

Tickets for the event go on sale on Friday 19 November.
