Dub Pistols return to Isle of Wight event

Isle of Wight holidays may be popular among fans of Dub Pistols this summer after it was revealed the band are to head to the island for a show.

They are to headline V-Dub Island for the second year in a row, with the event set to be held at the Isle of Wight County Showground in Northwood later this year.

Organisers of the festival - which is to run from August 2nd to 6th - revealed that popular demand was the reason for the group being invited back to the Isle of Wight.

They added that they were "simply mindblowing in 2011" and noted: "The incredible Dub Pistols will be returning to headline Saturday night's live music at this year's show."

More live bands will be added to the bill of the weekend over the course of the next couple of months, but some of the other entertainment on offer at the festival has already been revealed.

Award-winning drag racers the Supercharged Outlaws are to return to the Isle of Wight after a previous appearance at V-Dub Island, while it was announced by the curators the event will be putting on its own take of the Olympic Games, which will be hosted in London while the festival is ongoing on the island.

Tickets for the weekend start at just £25 and are now available from Isle of Wight ferry operator Red Funnel, with day tickets costing £10.

Other musical acts joining Dub Pistols on the initial line-up for V-Dub Island include The Ohmz, Born In A Barn, Nigel Thomas, Ben Goddard, Sam Franklin, The Vecks and The Hillmans.

V-Dub Island is primarily a chance for Volkswagen owners to get together on Isle of Wight holidays with like-minded people for a weekend of family-friendly fun and entertainment, with locally sourced food and drink available at the site as well.
