Festival Information

The legendary Isle of Wight Festival starts on 9th June. 4 days of Bands, DJs, Bars, Entertainment and much more. Sounds pretty great right?

You can still get tickets on from Ticketmaster.  

The Isle Of Wight Festival started out as a counter culture event in the late 1960's. The 1970 event was by far the largest, and most famous. So many people attended that Parliament passed the 'Isle Of Wight' Act to stop gatherings of more than 5000 people without a special license from then on.
