Red Funnel helps rock the Isle of Wight

Red Funnel, the Isle of Wight specialist, is offering ticket packages for this year’s Isle of Wight Festival, taking place over three days from 8 – 10 June 2007 at Seaclose Park, Newport. Tickets are expected to sell out fast with this year’s line-up so far including top British rock bands Snow Patrol, Muse, Kasabian and Keane - so book now with Red Funnel to make sure you don’t miss out.

Revived five years ago, the Isle of Wight festival is now firmly established in the summer festival calendar and this year’s line up includes guest appearances from Amy Winehouse, The Feeling, James Morrison, Ash, Wolfmother and The Fratellis promises to make it an event to remember.

This year, Red Funnel is offering packages on both its Southampton/East Cowes and Southampton/West Cowes routes – the latter being ideal for non-campers. Festivalgoers are also being offered the chance to pre-order their camping essentials which can then be collected from East Cowes on arrival. For those who prefer a real bed to sleep in, Red Funnel Holidays offer a wide range of accommodation packages starting from £206 per person for 3 nights B&B accommodation (based on two sharing), including weekend admission to the festival.

Foot passenger packages start from just £121.30 per person including return foot passenger travel between Southampton and East Cowes, weekend admission to the festival and secure ticket posting. Camping packages start from £141.30. Shuttle bus tickets from East Cowes to the festival site and full weekend rover tickets (giving unlimited travel round the island all weekend) are also available to purchase.

Car driver packages start from £151.50 per person, including return car ferry crossings, weekend admission to the festival and secure ticket posting. Additional passengers in a vehicle on this package will cost £115 per adult and £60 per child under 13 years. Camping and accommodation packages are also available.

Southampton is the easiest way to get to the festival; Red Funnel’s Passenger vehicle ferries operate hourly between Southampton & East Cowes (shuttle buses go to the official campsite) and Red Funnel’s Red Jet Hi-Speed service (ideal for non-campers) operates every 30 minutes between Southampton & West Cowes (scheduled buses go to Newport).
