Robbie Williams is currently celebrating the 25th anniversary of his solo career, and he's going to cap it off with a massive festival-closing headline performance.
The former Take That superstar will top the main stage at the Isle of Wight 2023 festival on Sunday, June 18.

Playing right before Robbie on that last day is Blondie.
The Debbie Harry-fronted group last toured the UK in April this year, albeit without founding member Chris Stein who was forced to pull out with heart issues.
The other main stage Isle of Wight headliners are the recently-reunited Pulp on Friday and George Ezra and The Chemical Brothers on the Saturday.
