The summer is closer than you realize and the people of the Isle of Wight are getting ready for their annual festival where dozens of musicians gather to rock the island from the ground during 3 nights of incendiary concerts. This year, the festival will take place on 8-11 June and big names are awaited to enchant the attendants. This festival was first organized in 1968 but after 1970 it took a very long break until 2002 when it became a regular for the Isle of Wight.
In fact, it’s regarded as one of the biggest European music festivals featuring impressive line-ups every year. In the past editions, big names like Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Fleetwood Mac and Faithless performed on the stage of Wight. Last year Iggy Pop and Queen & Adam Lambert put up an amazing show for those who appreciate good music.
Let’s start with the most popular artists that will take a few hours of their time to sing on Isle of Wight in June this year: David Guetta, Run DMC, Arcade Fire, Rod Stewart, Bastille, George Ezra etc.
Who else is going to perform? The list is long but here are the most important names: Kaiser Chiefs, Rag ‘N’ Bone Man, The Pretenders, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Example + DJ Wire, The Kooks, Clean Bandit, Imelda May, Razorlight etc.
