Tom Odell, Fall Out Boy and Katy B have been added to the line-up for the Isle of Wight festival.

They join headliners Kings of Leon, Biffy Clyro and Red Hot Chilli Peppers at the music event.

Other new names announced include The Pretty Reckless, Anna Calvi and Starsailor.

"When I was a bit younger, I used to climb up on the hill near to where I grew up and stare at the Isle of Wight," said Tom Odell.

"I remember knowing that a grand music festival was held on the island every year, and I dreamed at some point I would be there, playing.

"That day has come and I am thrilled."

"We are honoured that these incredible artists are coming to our festival to kick off the summer festival season in style."

The Isle of Wight Festival takes place between 12 and 15 June at Seaclose Park, Newport.
