Run DMC are set to play next year's Isle Of Wight festival.

The hip-hop legends will co-headline the event's Friday night slot, with dance giant David Guetta nabbing the second half of the billing.

Run DMC’s Joseph Simmons said: “We absolutely love playing in the UK, it’s always such a great reception. You guys rock! To be given the chance to play such an iconic UK festival is huge and we’re really looking forward to it!”

Other new additions include Bastille, George Ezra, and recent BRIT Critics Choice award winner Rag'n'Bone Man.

Festival promoter John Giddings said: “The Isle of Wight Festival has always been known for its variety in music and this year is no different. To have the world’s first and most inspiring hip hop group headlining alongside one of the world's biggest electronic DJ’s is fantastic. I’m also really excited about George Ezra, Rag ‘N’ Bone Man, Bastille and Jack Savoretti. Again there’s something for everyone. I know the crowds at the festival are going wild for all the acts, not just the headliners.”

Tickets are on sale now.

Isle of Wight festival runs between June 8th - 11th.
