Isle of Wight Festival is a British music festival which is annualy held in Newport on the Isle of Wight, England. The festival is also called the ”British Woodstock”. The original festival took place three times from 1968 to 1970, but it was not resurrected until 2002. Since then, the festival has been busy every year! The particular characteristic of this festival is that there is a new theme every year. As a result, the beautiful decor of the festival varies every year. For example, in 2022, the theme was ”Sirens & Sailors – The Life Aquatic”, which resulted in amazing decorations of mythical sea creatures.
Well-known pop and rock artists come to this festival every year. It is a festival that’s for all ages, young and old, as long as you want to have a good time!
