Isle Of Wight
10 to 12 June, Seaclose Park, Newport, Isle of Wight
Bands to watch: Jeff Beck, Foo Fighters, Kings Of Leon, Manic Street Preachers, Kasabian, Band Of Horses
In the 60s and 70s, this legendary festival played host to everyone, including Jimi Hendrix, Joni Mitchell, The Who, Black Sabbath, Bob Dylan and Jefferson Airplane. Now it’s returning to its rock roots and celebrating the 10th anniversary of its post-millennial reincarnation. And that means Isle Of Wight has pulled in some seriously A-list names.
If the pickless fingers of Jeff Beck – touring his Grammy-winning ‘Emotion And Commotion’ album – don’t do it for you (leave this place!), then perhaps a Foo Fighters, Kings Of Leon, or Manic Street Preachers set might.
