Rock legend David Bowie has been confirmed as the headline act at both the ISLE OF WIGHT and T In The Park music festivals in his native Britain next year (04).

The ZIGGY STARDUST singer is particularly looking forward to performing at the Isle of Wight festival (11-13JUN04) - which achieved notoriety during the 1960s after acts including Jimi Hendrix, The Doors and Bob Dylan played there - because he used to holiday there as a youngster.

He enthuses, "It's a fabulous place - I used to go there on holiday when I was a kid. I jumped at it, it is a smashing thing to do."
