The Isle Of Wight Festival saw George Ezra mark his first-ever major summer festival headline performance last night (June 15th), with special guest Fatboy Slim keeping the Main Stage party going into the night.

George, perched upon a bar stool thanks to a recent exercise-induced injury, paid tribute to those who’d come before him in the Isle of Wight Festival history books:

“I’m well aware that this is the famous Isle of Wight Festival that has housed legends like Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell. Well tonight, you’ve got George Ezra, off his head on anti-inflammatories, trying to do the best he can”.
