Last year, there was a range of entertainment for the festivalgoers. One such feature, called Life's A Beach, brought all the fun of the beach to the festival site, so that visitors wouldn't have to leave the area. For dance fans, Disco 2000 and the Hipshaker Lounge provided tunes and DJs. There was also a variety of pubs and cafes, not to mention a champagne garden!
The Isle of Wight is a family friendly festival and in 2011, a special Kids Zone was provided. It featured the Rainbow Stage; a dressing up tent and face painting marquee; and arts and crafts marquee; and a Toddler's area.
The Isle of Wight Festival is held every year at Seaclose Park, Newport, on the island. This year, it will be held from 22-24th June 2012 and tickets are available from the website.
