Isle Of Wight Festival 2015
Seaclose Park, Newport

This Festival has not been reviewed yet Be the first to write one!

August 1968 saw the first ever festival on the Isle Of Wight with a stage made out of two trailers as Jefferson Airplane, The Move and T-Rex performed to a crowd of 10,000 fans.

1969 saw the event grow with an audience of more than 150,000 people with Bob Dylan headlining the two day event. By 1970 this was THE festival to be at and a splendid 5 day extravaganza was arranged with major acts of the time lined up including the late great Jimi Hendrix.

Such was its attraction that in excess of 600,000 people turned up to the event - many declined to buy a ticket and a bit of chaos ensued - as a result the infamous 1970 'Isle of Wight Act' banning all future festivals was passed in Parliament - the fun was stopped in its tracks!

In 2002 after an enforced absence of 32 years  the festival was re-established.

Line up includes

Blur, Fleetwood Mac, Pharrell Williams, The Prodigy, The Black Keys, Billy Idol, Kodaline, Counting Crows, You Me At Six, First Aid Kit, Sheppard, Jessie Ware, The Struts, Jess Glynne, Kool & the Gang, James, Imelda May, Paul Oakenfold, Courteeners, Suzanne Vega, Ash, Foxes, Sharon Corr, Lightning Seeds, Geno Washington & the Ram Jam Band, The View, UB40's Ali Campbell, Astro and Mickey Virtue, Ian Anderson plays the best of Jethro Tull, La Femme, Groove Armada (DJ set), Chicks On Speed, Coasts, Ruen Brothers, Pretty Vicious, Visconti & Woodmansey, Ben Montague, Bethia Beadman, Claydon Connor, The Carnabys, Germein Sisters, Little Eye, Honey Ryder, The High Kings, King Eider, Pronghorn, James Walsh, Tim Arnold, James Bay, Dave McCabe & The Ramifications, Black Rivers, Kid Wave, Little Barrie, Eugene McGuinness, Findlay, Man Made, Young Kato, Dexters, Storms, Hyena, The Serpent Power, Sugarmen, The Sundowners, The Slow Readers Club, Man & The Echo, Hidden Charms, Life In Film, The Sherlocks, Bulletproof Bomb, Trampolene, The Jacques, Jolta, SlyDigs, Alias Kid, Cut, Glass Caves, Kassassin Street, Tijuana Bibles, BangBang Romeo, Decoy Jet, The Franklys, Conor Houston, The Watchmakers, Medicine Men, Judas, The SSS, The Savage Nomads, Bully Bones.

The Isle of Wight 2009
Pendulum hit the stage as NASA on a Bass Test. Drinks hit the floor; cigarettes were extinguished and 40,000 people were the best dancers on the island.....!!!
Friday at the Isle of Wight
By the end of play on Friday night the Isle of Wight had truly arrived... “At festivals you should expect the unexpected”
