2009 is the 50th anniversary of the founding of Island Records, arguably the most prestigious record label in the history of British music. To mark this milestone the label is collaborating with Island founder Chris Blackwell to arrange the Island 50 festival, which will kick off in May 2009 with ‘ISLAND LIFE’ – a week of live shows by Island artists past and present taking place at London’s Shepherds Bush Empire. One of those shows will be headlined by Keane on 30th May. Also playing that night will be The Tom Tom Club and Ladyhawke.
