As you all know I went to the Isle of Wight festival last year. It was amazing, like no other festival I’d ever been to (& I have been to a lot!). This years event looks set to be equally amazing… if not better.
Why is it going to be so good? Well the line up is already stirring up attention. It’s looking like it is set to be phenomenal! The Isle of Wight Festival 2012 line up just got a whole lot bigger with the addition of Elbow, Biffy Clyro, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Example, Noah & The Whale, The Vaccines, Madness, and The Christians. These phenomenal live acts will take the Festival by storm, making it one of THE hottest weekends of the year. Tickets are available now from www.isleofwightfestival.com.
The Isle of Wight Festival takes place 22 – 24 June @
Seaclose Park, Newport, Isle of Wight

Special Guests on Friday June 22nd are Elbow who have
received huge critical acclaim throughout their career and will bring
their award winning sound to the main stage at the Isle of Wight Festival 2012.
Noel Gallagher captured the voices, hopes and dreams of millions with Oasis and now returns with his masterpiece Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds for a highly anticipated performance at the Isle of Wight Festival 2012. Noel will be appearing on the main stage as Special Guest to the legendary Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band who will take the headline slot on Sunday June 24th. If any of you know me, you’ll know how excited about I am about seeing the Boss!
One of my personal faves, Scottish trio Biffy Clyro got the Festival crowd jumping in 2010
with an explosion of mammoth riffage and fizzing pop vocals. The band is
now back having conquered the rock world for round two with a Special
Guest appearance at the Isle of Wight Festival on Saturday June 23rd.
Example’s captivating performances and number one singles have
seen him skyrocket to success as he fronts a new generation of dance
acts. Expect an epic offering from the London artist as he lights up the
main stage on Friday June 22nd.
Making their Isle of Wight Festival main stage debut on Friday 22nd June are the highly talented Noah & The Whale, ensuring 2012 is another year of the best music around, in a truly magnificent setting.
The list of fantastic artists and bands just goes on and on. There will be plenty to see and do, including those important new upcoming artists! But If all that wasn’t enough, the Big Top stage will once again feature an exclusive performance for campers. On Thursday 21st June, soul legends The Christians whose album Colour reached the number one spot in 1990, start the weekend in true Isle of Wight Festival style.
