Three Things To Look Forward To At Isle Of Wight Festival 2017

The Isle of Wight Festival is almost upon us again and for those making the annual pilgrimage across the Solent, we have decided to talk about the three things that we’re most looking forward to about this year’s festival. To see more information on the Isle of Wight Festival, and to see this year’s full lineup, please read one of our other Isle of Wight 2017 articles.

Hard Rock Stage

Returning to the Isle of Wight Festival this year, in partnership with Hard Rock Cafe, is the infamous Hard Rock Stage. The stage will once again feature an exciting lineup of up and coming and undiscovered artists willing to show what they have to offer to thousands of festival goers and music fans. Make sure you check out some of the talent over the weekend.

4 Headliners

For the past three years, the Isle of Wight Festival has featured four headliners of the weekend, instead of the more traditional choice of three. 2017 will continue this newfound trend with a diverse variety of artists covering four distinct musical genres. 90s New York hip-hop group Run-DMC will make a return to the UK for the first time since they split in 2002, after the shooting of band member Jam Master Jay, to co-headline alongside French EDM producer David Guetta. Saturday night, possibly the most exciting, will welcome Canadian indie rock band Arcade Fire to the festival’s main stage. This will be the group’s first appearance at a UK festival since their Sunday night closing headline slot at Glastonbury in 2014. This year’s festival will be closed by legendary Scottish singer Rod Stewart.

British talent

Not only does the acts on the main stage appeal to a wide range of music enthusiasts, but so will the array of top quality British talent on offer at this year’s festival. British artists are on the bill include pop group Bastille, indie lads Catfish and the Bottlemen, the classical/pop fusion band Clean Bandit, rapper Example + DJ Wire, indie rockers Kaiser Chiefs, and newcomer Rag ‘n’ Bone Man among many others.

Isle of Wight Festival 2017 is shaping up to be another incredible year on the island. To buy your ticket now or for more information click here.
