Dates Changed For Isle Of Wight Festival

16 September 2011, 13:02 | Updated: 30 March 2016, 13:50

Details of next year's Isle of Wight Festival have been announced.

For one year only the Festival is moving from its usual weekend to Friday 22nd - Sunday 24th June, to make way for the Diamond Jubilee and half term celebrations.

John Giddings, Festival Promoter, says “We have been advised by the ferry companies that to run the same week as half term and the Jubilee would be problematic for our audience and production infrastructure. We have therefore taken the executive decision to move, for one year only, to 22/23/24th June 2012 to ensure a smooth journey for everyone and to get the entire infrastructure on and off the island”.

The 2 week long presale will start on Friday 30th September at 12 noon and for the first time the Festival is offering a staged payment plan for tickets purchased during the presale period only, at 2011 prices. Wightlink and Red Funnel will be selling ticket and ferry packages from the 30th September at 2011 ticket prices with early bird ferry rates.

If you are a Vodafone customer, you can get tickets from 28 September - 48 hours before the presale begins.(The staged payment plan will also be available to Vodafone customers)
