Paul Weller is the latest act to be added to the bill for this year's Isle Of Wight Festival.
The former frontman of The Jam will appear as a special guest before headliners The Stone Roses.
The other headliners already announced for the first major festival of the summer are The Killers and Bon Jovi.
"Modfather" Weller said: "It's been a while since I've played the Isle Of Wight Festival and I'm excited to be playing it this year. It's a great way to kick off the summer."
John Giddings, the festival's promoter, said: "If you like music, you like Paul Weller - he is one of the greatest singer-songwriters this country has produced and we are proud to bring him to our small island off the south coast. We have plenty of pebbles on a beach for him."
The Isle of Wight Festival 2013 runs from June 13 to 16 at Seaclose Park, Newport.
