Isle of Wight Festival returns in June 2023, to welcome once again over 90,000 music fans for a weekend of rock, pop and dance music.

The Isle Of Wight Festival is the UK’s oldest music festival and takes place in Newport’s Seaclose Park on the Isle of Wight. Since first forming in 1968, the Isle Of Wight Festival has secured its place in pop culture history thanks to past performances from Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, The Who, The Doors, Joni Mitchell and many more music legends.

The multi-genre music festival consistently welcomes some of the best acts from rock, pop, dance and much more to the unique island setting, complete with its own microclimate. Located just two hours from London, festival goers can experience the ultimate escape of live music and entertainment. To this day, Isle of Wight Festival remains a staple of the UK festival calendar.
