New Isle of Wight event gets go-ahead

A music festival planned to take place on the Isle of Wight in August has received the go-ahead.

Paul Weller will headline Summer Madness 2010 at Froglands Farm, Carisbrooke after permission was granted by the Isle of Wight Council for the festival to take place, reports the Isle of Wight County Press.

The former Jam singer will top a bill which also includes Twisted Wheel, Brand New Heavies and Isle of Wight band The Bees on August 29th 2010.

Home Grown Events, the promoter of the day-long gig, told the Isle of Wight Council licensing sub-committee that more care would be taken to avoid the problems with last year's event.

Some Carisbrooke residents fear environmental damage could be caused by 10,000 revellers heading to the town for the concert, with councillor John Hobart stating that flooded toilets could lead to the contamination of a stream.

Imelda May and The Chords are also set to play at the event, as well as a special guest who is yet to be announced. ADNFCR-3083-ID-19778078-ADNFCR
