Forget The Chainsmokers and Coldplay – could this be the weirdest team-up in music history?
Organiser and legendary band manager John Giddings has hinted that Bastille and Sir Rod Stewart could be collaborating in a special Isle of Wight Festival performance (yes, really).
In an interview with Southampton’s very own Surge Radio, Giddings hinted that this star studded team-up could be on the cards. “I love Bastille. I think they might perform with Rod Stewart, they might have written a song together.”
As unlikely as this may sound, Rod Stewart and Bastille are joint headliners on Sunday night at the festival, so they will be at the right place at the right time. Though their music may be quite different – Bastille known for new indie pop and Sir Rod for old school hits in blues rock – both are known for the versatility and they could kick up quite the storm with a collaboration.
Here Giddings talk about the potential collaboration at 09:55 mark. The whole interview sees Giddings talk about his history in the music industry, how he revived Isle of Wight in 2002, and where he gets his inspiration from.
