With just a few weeks to go this years’ IoW Festival will soon be under way. Traditionally the first of the Festival Season’s events will take place between the 21st-24th June and this year is its 50th Anniversary party.
With a line-up that includes Kasabian, Liam Gallagher, Depeche Mode and the Killers I doubt that even inclement weather (which is not expected by the way) could dampen the spirits.
The Thursday night openers include the Wombats and Hot Tub Time Machine as a gentle introduction to the proceedings. Things really take shape on Friday as Liverpool’s Circa Waves, Feeder and Chase & Status appear alongside Rita Ora, Nile Rodgers, The Script and Kasabian.
Saturday sees Tokio Myers and Soul II Soul appearing while on the main stage Jessie J, Kodaline, Blossoms and James Bay entertain before co-headliners Liam Gallagher and Depeche Mode close the day.
The big attractions on Sunday include the wonderful Sheryl Crow followed by Van Morrison and the Manic Street Preachers the n Sunday headliners The Killers close the event.
Renowned as a family event the IoW Festival continues to bring together some of the best names in popular music and this year is no exception.
