X Factor winners Rak-Su are among those acts who’ll be taking to the stage at the 2018 Isle Of Wight Festival this summer.

The four-piece – who were crowned 2017 winners of the series back in December – will join a line-up which also includes The Wombats and Travis as the festival celebrates its 50th anniversary.

Other acts who will be taking part include Sigrid, Hot Dub Time Machine and Hurts, as well as the likes of The Pretty Things, LANY, Bang Bang Romeo and Hudson Taylor.

The latest acts join previously announced artists including headliners Liam Gallagher, The Killers, Depeche Mode and Kasabian.

Kasabian last headlined the event in 2011 – having first played it four years previously – and admitted the history of the site means a lot to them.

‘We’re hugely honoured to play at the Isle of Wight Festival. It’s kind of a big deal Jimi Hendrix played in the 70’s, 50 years on and we’re playing it! That’s pretty phenomenal, thanks for having us!’ the band said.
