"I'VE got high hopes for the festival, I reckon we can get the Big Top rocking," said Miles Kane, chatting to the CP ahead of his Saturday slot at the Isle of Wight Festival.

Dubbed one of Britain’s landmark composers by MOJO, the Liverpool musician played with The Little Flames and The Rascals before going solo, and has also performed with Alex Turner, of Arctic Monkeys fame, as The Last Shadow Puppets.

It's fair to say he's been around, and he knows what makes a good festival show.

"I've got festivals and gigs lined up. It's going to be an exciting summer, I'm up for it," he said.

"Festival sets have got to be rocking, they've got to be upbeat. We'll have a sing-a-long, it'll be fun.

"People want to have fun at a festival, so it'll be full on festival energy. We'll blow your socks off."

Kane has never been one to shy away from a statement. With his debut solo record, Colour of the Trap, he won critical acclaim, selling out headline UK and Europeans shows and winning over crowds at major UK and international festivals.
It was followed by the avant-garde Don’t Forget Who You Are and his latest album, Coup de Grace.
