9-12 June - Will you need your wellies and waterproofs or suncream and ice lollies for the Isle of Wight Festival this year?

About the festival

The event first began in 1968, as a fundraiser for the local swimming association, and ran for three years. Worldwide acts, including Marc Bolan, Bob Dylan and Jimi Hendrix, took part. After a 32 year gap, the festival had a relaunch in 2002 and has been an annual event ever since, with acts such as The Stone Roses, Bon Jovi, The Who, Coldplay, Muse and Snow Patrol headlining.  

Festival-goers will be hoping for a warm and dry weekend, to keep the site from becoming bog-like and their tents clean. 

For further information about getting to the festival visit the  Isle of Wight Festival official website.
