Isle of Wight Festival Main Stage artist Freya Ridings, who has previously played the Big Top, has been forced to cancel her Sunday afternoon performance.

The singer songwriter, who is suffering with a chest infection, had already pulled out of performances earlier in the week.

Instead, Laura Mvula will step in - making her return to Seaclose Park.

The Green Garden and Safe Noise singer will be on Main Stage from 3.50pm tomorrow.

She is a BRIT and Mercury Prize nominated artist and her third studio album, Pink Noise, was released last July via Atlantic Records.
