Several top ten hits and a decade later, Scouting for Girls arrived at Isle of Wight festival main stage on Sunday to perform to a crowd in their thousands. Opening with their top ten single ‘Heartbeat’ the crowd sang and danced along; reflecting the feel good tone of their well loved tracks.

Also we’re putting the final touches to our new single, which will also be released this year”.
