Isle of Wight Festival

Since 1968 the Isle of Wight Festival has been a huge hit and was originally regarded as the European equivalent of Woodstock. The headline acts have always been major player in the music industry from Jimi Hendrix to the Sex pistols. Of course, this won’t be the first and probably not the last time that The Who will play this festival and we can’t wait to be transported back to the 70’s!

What To Expect?

The line up this year is certainly out to impress with big names such as Queen (joined by Adam Lambert), Stereophonics, Adam Ant, Iggy Pop and even Busted! This is a mere handful of the big names on the bill of the Isle of Wight Festival so it will definitely be one to put on the calendar. Just about every music style will be on offer to you at this year’s extravaganza from up and coming indie bands to old school hip hop.

With huge drinks sponsors like Bulmers offering a fun colourena full of colourful challenges, Strongbow with their impressive tree house with exclusive DJ’s and Jack Daniels’ rock and roll clubhouse, the party will always be flowing!

The Isle of Wight festival is renowned for being a fantastic family destination and with kids getting in for free, who can argue? There will be a specifically designed kid’s zone so that your little ones can keep the party going when you’re not rocking with your favourite bands. There will be crafting and circus workshops as well as age appropriate comedy and puppet shows to enjoy.
