Known for bringing some of the biggest acts anywhere to the UK, the Isle of Wight Festival has become a must for any music lover. Offering a little something for everyone, the festival has included such acts as The Sex Pistols, The Rolling Stones, Coldplay, R.E.M., and the Foo Fighters. Held every year at Seaclose Park on the Isle of Wight, this festival brings together music fans from around the world.
Tickets to the Isle of Wight Festival are available online and range from £65 to £150. Tickets can be purchased for either camping or non-camping and children under the age of six get in free. When buying tickets, be sure that they are purchased from an organization which is affiliated with the festival and never buy tickets from an unofficial outlet or website. Alternate housing is also available both on the island and off. The Isle of Wight Tourism can offer suggestions on places to stay, but it is recommended that you book early as thousands of participants flock to the festival each year.
If you would rather commune with nature while taking in the sounds of the festival, camping is also available at Strawberry Fields. In addition to the main camping area, there is also a family area and quiet zone for those who want to enjoy a little bit more peace. Showers and plenty of toilets are also located in both camping areas. Food tents are located throughout the grounds offering a wide variety of fares. No food can be brought in with the exception of that for medical reasons. Prices are reasonable and ATMs are located throughout the site for additional funds.
