Are you prepared for festival season?
Well, the Isle of Wight Festival is coming up and since it’s a big anniversary, they’re got a top line-up for you.
Headliners include The Script, The Killers, Liam Gallagher and James Bay, with many more acts yet to be confirmed. Though, from the few who have, this year looks to be an exciting mix of rock and indie music.
An event for the whole family, the Isle of Wight Festival has kid zones where child friendly events, performances and arts and crafts activities take place, along with magician acts, music and puppet shows. It’s the year for families as more events have been added to appeal to the mass, with circus workshops as well as performances, singing sessions and a mother and baby tent is available for little ones to join in the fun.
For the main events, the arena opens at 2pm on Friday and 11am on the weekend. Like other festivals, the Isle of Wight Festival doesn’t allow bottles or cans into the arena for safety reasons.
This year’s dates are Thursday 21st June until Sunday 24th June 2018. Keeping with tradition, the Thursday evening has a campers only entertainment night with Big Top returning to perform before the festival begins on the Friday.
Festival goers travelling to the island for the event need to make sure their ferry is booked as tickets are selling fast and with festival season fast approaching, grabbing an early booking is essential.
While the Isle of Wight Festival is two months away, the event has the capacity to hold 90,000 festival goers, which means there is a lot of organising if left until eight weeks before the event.
Early preparation for festival season is essential as festival wristbands can have a lead-time of 2-3 weeks after design and payment, which means getting ideas, designs, and products processed as an order in plenty of time of the event is important.
