Iconic groups The Charlatans and Echo & The Bunnymen have joined the bill for this summer's V Festival.
The Charlatans Biography
The Charlatans are one of the UK's most loved indie rock bands.
Formed in 1989 by bassist Martin Blunt, the band became synonymous with the Madchester scene. Having undergone numerous personnel changes over the years, 2013 saw the passing of drummer Jon Brookes. The band were joined in tribute at the Royal Albert Hall by James Dean Bradfield, Liam Gallagher and members of the Vaccines and New Order in a tribute gig.
The Isle of Wight festival has added more acts to its bumper line-up this evening, with indie heroes The Charlatans joined by breakthrough band Sunset Sons and punk icons Stiff Little Fingers.
Tim Burgess talks to XFM's Danielle Perry about how the band got over tragedy by making sunny new album Modern Nature.
The Charlatans came in to talk to John Kennedy about their great new album You Cross My Path.
Sometimes the wild and wacky world of music just isn't enough. Sometimes rock stars have extra curricular activities - anything from farming to flying. Let's look at what they get up to when they're offstage.
Which artists have come out of the block, all guns blazing? XFM picks half a ton of excellent debuts.
