Isle Of Wight Festival 2017


Last year, it was reported that Isle Of Wight Festival could be cancelled in 2017, due to an alleged row with the council in which organisers were said to be considering scrapping the event unless it cuts its costs significantly. However, Isle Of Wight Festival then confirmed that a deal had been struck and vowed to return in 2017 with a stellar line-up.

One of the first of the summer season, Isle Of Wight Festival 2017 takes place from 8-11 June at Seaclose Park. For tickets and more information, visit here.
