Isle of Wight Festival 2019, UK
June 13 - June 16
£60 – £175
One of the most popular and colourful festivals in the summer music scene, the Isle of Wight Festival returns to the rolling isle off the South Coast of England this June.
The first festival was held at Hell Field, near Godshill, from August 31 to September 1, 1968, followed by the Wootton Festival with Bob Dylan the next year. In 1970, Jimi Hendrix rocked it at the Afton Festival.
This year, the festival organisers are celebrating Dylan’s fest with the ‘Summer of 69’, encouraging all revellers to fully embrace the 69 Festival’s theme of Peace and Love. Psychedelic clothing and Afghan coats are not obligatory, although the best-dressed 60s ‘King or Queen of the Summer’ will be crowned on the Saturday night.
This year sees George Ezra, Fatboy Slim, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Rick Astley, Tom Walker, Sigrid and Jess Glynne take to the island. There will even be a performance by Dylan-tribute band, Simply Dylan. The full line-up can be found here.
