Preparation underway for Isle of Wight folk event

Fans of folk music may be tempted to book Isle of Wight holidays for next year in order to attend a festival dedicated to the genre that is being held on the island.

Organisers of Folkstation Festival have revealed that Forest Farm, Porchfield, is the new home of the event, according to local news source VentnorBlog.

Preparations are well underway for the 2012 event and those in charge told the news provider that they are going to offer "one of the best family festival experiences during the Isle of Wight's busy festival season".

Folkstation Festival has been held for the last four years at Havenstreet Steam Railway, but the organisers have elected to move to a new home for the 2012 event.

It has also been confirmed that the festival will take place from July 6th to 8th next year. Adults can buy tickets now at an early bird discounted rate of £40 for the weekend, while camping costs £10 per pitch.
