The band's sole UK performance of 2014...
Red Hot Chili Peppers

Red Hot Chili Peppers are set to headline this year's Isle of Wight festival.

One of the biggest festivals in the land, the Isle of Wight festival has a habit of pulling together a number of stellar artists.

This summer looks to be no exception, with Red Hot Chili Peppers due to headline the Isle of Wight festival. In a new move, the band have agreed to perform at the event - making this their sole UK performance of 2014.

In a short statement the band said: "To headline the Isle of Wight Festival is a once in a lifetime opportunity, following in the footsteps of Jimi Hendrix and The Doors. When we were offered the slot, we jumped at the chance… it will be our only show in the UK/Ireland this year… so we intend to make it really special."

Of course, this is a big week for Red Hot Chili Peppers. The seminal funk-rockers are set to perform at the Superbowl Half Time show, traditionally one of the most-watched sets in global television.

Denying that they are to cover Led Zeppelin during the festivities, the band have refused to let slip on what will make their set list. Wait and see...

The Isle of Wight festival runs between June 12th - 15th.
