The Isle of Wight Festival takes place from 21st – 24th June at Seaclose Park, Newport. This year will also mark the 50th Anniversary of the Isle of Wight Festival. The first event in 1968 put the festival on the map as it then grew to become world renowned for iconic performances from artists such as The Doors, The Who and Jimi Hendrix in his last ever UK show. The festival was successfully relaunched in 2002 to become one of the most exciting weekends of the summer, continuing to build on its proud heritage with show-stopping headliners such as Foo Fighters, The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, Jay-Z, Coldplay and Fleetwood Mac.
Today, The Isle of Wight Festival 2018 announces 23 new acts to be added to the bill: Camila Cabello, Manic Street Preachers, Chase & Status, Nile Rodgers & CHIC, Haçienda Classiçal, Rita Ora, Jessie J, Kodaline, Soul II Soul, Feeder, Circa Waves, Sheryl Crow, Tom Grennan, Walking on Cars, The Skids, Louise, Ten Tonnes, Tokio Myers, The Professionals, Get Cape.Wear Cape.Fly, Rothwell, Judas, Catherine McGrath.
They join headliners Depeche Mode, The Killers, Kasabian, Liam Gallagher as well as The Script, Van Morrison, James Bay and Blossoms who will also be playing across the weekend.
In honour of the festival’s ‘Golden Jubilee’, all attendees are invited on Saturday 23rd June to adorn themselves in gold for a weekend of fun and celebration. Expect to see sparkling divas, shining stars and victorious gladiators come together for this year’s 50th anniversary.
