The revived legendary Isle of Wight Festival of the late 60’s is now held annually at Seaclose Park, Newport since 2002. It was originally a counterculture event held from 1968 to 1970.
What started off as a counterculture event in the 1960s has grown to become one of the biggest music festivals in the UK. Hosted on the largest island in England, the festival is a four day bender that features some of the biggest names in the biz.
This year’s headliners are Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, George Ezra, Biffy Clyro – just to give you an idea of the calibre of talent bustling around the island over this weekend.
The luxuries at the festival are glorious as well, with mobile charging stations everywhere so you can keep up on social media and outdoor hot tubs and saunas to sink into when the day is done.
