Isle of Wight Festival
Catch the biggest names in rock and pop on the banks of the river Medina. This year’s headliners include David Guetta and Run DMC on the Friday night, with Arcade Fire topping the bill on Saturday, and Rod Steward rounding things off on Sunday. The festival boasts a huge age range, from babes in arms to grizzled old rockers – everyone is catered for. While it still leans heavily on the main stage and Big Top acts, there is plenty more fun to be had in other areas, such as the Kashmir Café, which showcases Isle of Wight bands and Island-brewed ales, and the Cirque de la Quirk, which injects a welcome streak of anarchy into the weekend.
