The UK’s Longest-Running Music Festival
Date: 13-16 June 2019
Isle of Wight Festival is the UK’s longest-running music festival, and remains one of the most popular in Europe. Each year it brings around 90,000 music fans to the island for a weekend of iconic rock stars, underground dance acts and everything in between.
Born in 1968 and still rocking out strong 50 years later, Isle of Wight Festival has lived through decades of musical and cultural change, always staying relevant and incredibly popular. Just a handful of the greats to have headlined its hallowed main stage are Fleetwood Mac, David Bowie, The Rolling Stones and The Who.
Great for families, the lineup also includes a diverse programme of theatre, film, comedy, activities and games, stretching across four days and a huge, unique location.
And beyond the festival’s gates, those wishing to turn the trip into a longer holiday will find an island offering all kinds of extra activities, including walking, cycling, horse riding, kayaking, sailing and much, much more.
The lineup has not yet been announced. Last year included Kasabian, Depeche Mode, The Killers, Liam Gallagher and many more.
The Isle of Wight sits just off England’s south coast, and is connected by ferry and hovercraft services from Southampton, Portsmouth, Lymington and Southsea.
