News Release 21-01-2009

The Prodigy, Basement Jaxx, Pendulum and the Ting Tings appearing at the Isle of Wight Festival 2009

The Prodigy and Basement Jaxx have been announced as headline acts at this year’s Isle of Wight festival and Red Funnel is offering festivalgoers the chance to book their camping and ferry tickets before they sell out!

Joining The Prodigy and Basement Jaxx at this year’s festival are Aussie drum and bass dudes Pendulum and hip popstrels The Ting Tings.
Taking place over three days from 12 – 14 June 2009, the Isle of Wight Festival promises to be one of the top festivals to attend this summer, with acts for the Saturday and Sunday still to be announced. Previous artists at the festival have included rock legends such as Bob Dylan, the Doors, and Jimi Hendrix, who gave his last ever performance there in 1970. In recent years, festival crowds have been wowed by sets from modern legends such as the Foo Fighters, Amy Winehouse and Coldplay.

Voted Best Major Festival in 2007, the Isle of Wight Festival was nominated for no fewer than four categories in the 2008 UK Festival Awards, and with last year’s festival selling out in record time, festival-goers should book early to avoid disappointment.
