Isle of Wight festival 2017 guide

Big headliners, rising talent and good vibrations are just a ferry ride away at this major UK music festival

By Alexandra Gerrity

First things first: when is the Isle of Wight festival 2017?

It takes place from Thursday June 8–Sunday June 11. It’s just a short ferry trip from the mainland on the Isle of Wight (unsurprisingly).

Who’s on the Isle of Wight festival line-up?

Arcade Fire, Rod Stewart, David Guetta, Run DMC are headliners. Other acts announced so far include Catfish and the Bottlemen, The Vamps, Clean Bandit, Zara Larsson, George Ezra, Bastille, Jack Savoretti.

What’s the vibe?

Despite being born in the sixties, IOW has still got clout. Since its relaunch in 2002 it’s made an impressive name for itself by bagging classic rock outfits and rubbing them right up against their protégés. It’s on a far more laid-back plane than the island’s other big event Bestival, and the perfect festival for music heads hoping to discover new talent and see their heroes in one fell swoop. In short: a four-day, family-friendly festival with acts to suit music fans young and old.
