Isle of Wight Festival and Bestival 'the pick of the bunch'

Music lovers could be booking Isle of Wight holidays after a pair of major events being held on the island next summer were described as being the best festivals on offer.

Bestival and the Isle of Wight Festival were both named by Southern Daily Echo columnist and entertainment editor Lorelei Reddin as two bashes she is looking forward to attending.

She stated that she is impressed by the line-up at the latter event and is "terribly keen" to see Foo Fighters, Kings of Leon, Pulp and Kasabian.

"Even the detractors, who felt the acts were all too similar and didn't provide Isle of Wight's diverse tradition of the odd blast from the past, were soon subdued when a Tom Jones announcement followed," she noted.

Ms Reddin added that Bestival organisers Rob da Bank and John Giddings could not have done any better with the acts they have chosen, the list of which is topped by The Cure, who will play their only European show of 2011 on the Isle of Wight.

Next year's Bestival takes place from September 8th to 11th.
