The Killers will headline the Isle of Wight Festival 2013.

The 'When You Were Young' rockers are set to top the bill of the main stage in Seaclose Park on Saturday 15 June, joining other headliners The Stone Roses and Bon Jovi.

John Giddings, the festival's promoter, is thrilled to have signed up the US quartet - Brandon Flowers, Ronnie Vannucci, Dave Keuning and Mark Stoermer - to play.

He said: ''We are proud to bring one of the world's greatest rock bands of the last decade to our small island off the South Coast of England. It will be a weekend to remember.''

Every one of The Killers' four records have reached the top of the UK album charts and they have sold over 15 million albums worldwide.

Other artists confirmed to perform at the event next year are; Jake Bugg, The Script, Bloc Party, Paloma Faith, The Maccadees, Ellie Goulding, Happy Mondays, Fun., Bonnie Raitt, Imperial Teen, The Farm, Blondie and Republica.
