The Isle of Wight Festival takes place 13th – 16th June at Seaclose Park, Newport. Last year fans celebrated the 50th Anniversary of the Isle of Wight Festival. The first festivals in 1968, 1969 and 1970 put the event on the map for its world renowned, iconic performances from artists such as The Doors, The Who and Jimi Hendrix. The event was successfully relaunched in 2002 to become the first major festival in the UK calendar, and one of the most exciting weekends of the summer. It continues to build on its proud heritage and has featured show-stopping headliners such as David Bowie, Foo Fighters, The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, Jay-Z, Coldplay and Fleetwood Mac since its reincarnation in 2002.
