After last years Charlatans headlined, apparently poor ticket selling, Isle of Wight Festival, famous for Hendrix rockin' it back in the day, returns for 2003..
On 14th & 15th June @ Seaclose Park, Newport, Isle of Wight you will be able to wrap your seabreezed senses around: Paul Weller, Starsailor, Iggy Pop, Counting Crows, Bryan Adams + "many more to be announced soon". That does look a bit like a bill for my folks, especially if you bear in mind Ash and Hundred Reasons played it last year and it's meant to be a rival to glasto. However, on Solo's (the promoters) messageboard they promise "There will certainly be acts to rock you!"
Tickets are £30 for one day, £50 for the weekend with an extra £10 for camping Thurs-Monday, all available from Ticketzone.co.uk or call 08705 321321. If you'd like to get your ferry ticket at the same time (it's the most expensive bit of sea to cross for its distance in the world dontchaknow!) ticket packages are available soon from redfunnel.co.uk/music or by calling: 0870 444 8898.
More info can be found over @ isleofwightfestival.com.
DiScuss: Who do you wanna see play it? Did you go last year, what was it like?
