Isle of Wight Festival 2021, UK
September 16 - September 19
£70 – £185
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 September.
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.
2019 and 2021 Line-Ups
2019 saw 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 2021 line-up has yet to be announced, although the organisers say that they will try to include as many of the artists who signed up for the cancelled 2020 festival as possible. So this could see Lionel Ritchie, Snow Patrol, Duran Duran, Happy Mondays, Primal Scream and the Kaiser Chiefs performing. Details will be found here.
