A veteran at the age of 32, Sam Duckworth is back as Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly, returning after a brief hiatus.

With four top 40 singles and two top 40 albums under his belt, Duckworth is back with his mix of folktronica and politics, with new album Young Adult.

Sam Duckworth said: “IOW is a legendary festival, one steeped in historic performances and its line ups have acted as a who’s who of the greats.

“It’s because of this history that it’s always been on my wish list of festivals to play. It’s a great honour and privilege to be making my IOW debut this year.”

Rothwell has been championed by fellow musicians and tastemakers Annie Mac and MistaJam. She has supported the likes of Justin Bieber on his Purpose UK tour and has also had global brand-backing from MAC and Levi’s. Recently claimed by Metro as the “up-and-coming star”, her latest single Velvet Heart showcases Rothwell’s rich and distinctive vocals against cool and catchy electronic beats sure to get hearts beating.

The Isle of Wight Festival takes place from June 21- 24. The first event in 1968 grew to be world renowned for iconic performances from artists such as The Doors, The Who and Jimi Hendrix in his last ever UK show. The festival was successfully relaunched in 2002 to become one of the most exciting weekends of the summer, continuing to build on its proud heritage with show-stopping headliners such as Foo Fighters, The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, Jay-Z, Coldplay and Fleetwood Mac.
