Pack everything – the weather for this week’s Isle Of Wight Festival still looks mixed

Bring every kind of clothing you can think of this weekend

Fans heading to Isle Of Wight Festival this weekend looks like they’ll need to bring every kind of clothing possible – because the weather is predicted to be extremely changeable.

The festival at Seaclose Park in Newport on the island starts on Thursday (June 13) and runs until Sunday.

It’s headlined by Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds on the Friday, followed by George Ezra on Saturday and Biffy Clyro closing the main stage on Sunday.


The Met Office’s forecast for the festival is predicting highs of 15C on Thursday, with some sunshine amongst the clouds.

However, the day currently has the highest prediction of rain, which currently stands at a 40% chance. Appropriately for Thursday, 1980s popsters Wet Wet Wet are the main attraction that day. The main stage isn’t open, but the band behind hits like ‘Wishing I Was Lucky’ headline the Big Top, fronted by new singer Kevin Simm.

As well as Noel Gallagher, the Friday features The Courteeners, Lily Allen, James and DMA’s.

In addition to George Ezra, Saturday’s bill features Fatboy Slim, Bastille, Sundara Karma, Miles Kane, Sam Fender and Big Top headliners Garbage.

Friday and Saturday are looking warmer weather wise, with highs of 17C, but cloud cover for the majority of both days is expected.


The final day at Isle Of Wight Festival on June 16 is looking up, however, with highs of 17C and sunshine predicted for most of the day.

Playing before Biffy Clyro are Richard Ashcroft, Madness, Idles, The Coral and Big Top headliners Keane.
