X Factor winners Little Mix and hip hop duo Rizzle Kicks have been added to the Isle of Wight Festival line-up.

Other acts to complete the bill include Everything Everything, Bastille, Delilah, Tim Burgess and T'Pau.

Little Mix said: "We've always wanted to go and now we get to go and perform, amazing."

The Killers, Bon Jovi and The Stone Roses have already been announced as headliners for the first major festival of the summer, in June.

Burgess, the frontman of The Charlatans, will be performing in the Cabaret Club.

Mud baths

He said: "There'll be DJ sets, live performances and all sorts of grooviness and goodness going on."

John Giddings, the festival's promoter, said: "Now that the line-up is complete, I am really excited for this year's festival.

"We have something for everyone."

Bob Geldof is also set to front the Boomtown Rats at the event - 26 years after last performing with the band.

The festival runs from 13-16 June, at Seaclose Park in Newport.

Last year's event was marred by heavy rain, which turned many car parks into mud baths with some festival-goers forced to sleep in their cars as traffic became gridlocked.
