The Isle of Wight Festival 2009

The Isle of Wight Festival is due to get underway next Friday, 12 June 2009.

This annual music festival was originally set up in 1968 and ran until 1970 when concerns over its safety led to it being banned.

In 2002 the festival was revived and is now held annually. This year the festival takes place between 12 – 14 June at Seaclose Park, Newport. Tickets for the three-day event can be bought online – for more details click here.
