    It's barely winter and bands are already making summer plans!

    Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers will play the legendary Isle of Wight Festival this summer. It'll be Petty and co.'s first time playing the UK festival. The Isle of Wight Festival will take place from June 22 through 24, and it will also boast a headlining set from Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band.

    Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers will take the stage at the festival on June 22.

    Isle of Wight Festival promoter John Giddings said, "It has taken years to achieve, but I'm sure it will be worth the wait -- they are one of the greatest rock and roll bands of all time." True dat, John.
