Paul Oakenfold to play Isle of Wight show

Dance music fans could be booking Isle of Wight holidays after it was revealed DJ legend Paul Oakenfold is to travel to the island to perform a headline show at an island event.

He has been announced as the name at the top of the bill of WOWfest, which is set to take place from August 17th to 19th and feature a host of top acts across the weekend.

Oakenfold will be taking in the show at WOWfest as part of a series of events all over the world he is set to play this year.

Other names to have been announced as taking their place on the line-up of the event include Danny Rampling and Maxi Priest, with the bash set to take place under St Martin's Down, which is within walking distance of Shanklin and Ventnor, according to the organisers.

Junior Marvin of Bob Marley's Wailers is also heading to the Isle of Wight this August to play at the festival, along with Norman Jay and US house maestro Marshall Jefferson.

Manos De Dios, Terrakota and Baka Beyond are playing on the One World Stage, while the Blue Angel Stage plays host to top performances from the likes of Joe Cang, The Dennis Rollins Velocity Trio, Gregg Kofi Brown and Sarah Jane Morris.

Oxfam, Solar Aid, Building Schools for Africa, Sustrans, Vegfam and the IW NHS Juba project are among the charities to be linked with WOWfest, while tickets for the event are already on sale through a wide range of outlets.

"But of course, it's not just about the headliners and entertainment - in this day and age a successful festival must have a high level of eco-awareness to ensure that the footprint of the festival is sustainable," added the curators of the event, who are encouraging attendees to use bikes and buses during their time on the Isle of Wight instead of cars.
