Rhythmtree 'is Isle of Wight's most relaxed festival'

Rhythmtree on the Isle of Wight has been described as the most relaxed festival of its kind to be held on the island, which may encourage to book tickets for the show.

According to organiser Gerry Priddle, the event has a reputation for being one of the friendliest dates on the Isle of Wight's annual calendar.

It takes place from July 20th to 22nd and is set to see hundreds, if not thousands, of people travel to the Isle of Wight in order to attend.

Speaking to the Isle of Wight County Press, Mr Priddle explained he booked Krar Collective to play at the event back in January and since then the act has been confirmed as premiering their BT River of Sound performance on the island.

He noted they had previously been down to play on the Saturday of the weekend, but the manager of the group called him to request they be moved to the Sunday, the closing day.

Mr Priddle said: "He couldn't give too many details but indicated it was to do with a major world music event being organised as part of the build up to the Olympic Games."

Rhythmtree Festival is therefore going to be the first chance for fans of the Krar Collective to see their new show ahead of the Olympic Games this summer.

The sporting competition gets underway in London on July 27th, so the performance on the Isle of Wight will come just a few days ahead of this.

"People of all ages who attend will have a great weekend and hopefully dance to some of the most upbeat world music performances to be found at any event this summer," said the organiser, with Ventnorian in Ventnor and Wight Outdoors in Freshwater among the outlets to be selling tickets for the festival.

Camping passes at £77 for adults for the whole weekend are also available from Isle of Wight ferry operator Red Funnel.
