A distant descendant of the enormous festival which brought around 600,000 people (almost six times the island's population) to the Isle of Wight in 1970, nowadays the Isle of Wight Festival is a four-day, family-friendly festival with acts to suit music fans young and old. Ageing funk-poppers the Red Hot Chili Peppers, US rockers Kings of Leon and superstar DJ Calvin Harris are three of the big guns, alongside loads of other rock, pop and indie acts, with something for everyone who likes their music made by guitars.
