Rob da Bank to play Isle of Wight event

Rob da Bank is set to perform a DJ set at an upcoming event on the Isle of Wight.

He has been confirmed as one of the top names on the bill for the Yarmouth Old Gaffers Festival, which is set to take place in the seaside town from May 25th to 27th.

The Radio 1 star - who also curates Bestival on the Isle of Wight each year - will be taking to the stage on the opening night of the festival.

He will be joined by acts including The Cuban Brothers, Skinny Lister and Sombrero Sound System on the bill of the Yarmouth Old Gaffers Festival.

Saturday night has been planned to be a tribute evening, with bands such as QueenB (featuring Paul Jackson as Freddie Mercury), Abba's Angels and Rod Stewart the Mod among those lined up to perform.

Over 100 visiting traditional sailing, steam and motor vessels will be hosted in Yarmouth's harbour over the course of the weekend, with attendees encouraged to wear fancy dress.

Prizes will be given out for the best King and Queen in fancy dress during the Yarmouth Old Gaffers Festival, with thousands of people expected to go.

Tickets cost just £8 and are available from the Yarmouth and Lymington Wightlink Booking Office, the Southern Vectis Bus Station Kiosk in Yarmouth and at the Festival Information Desk, which is located at Yarmouth Town Hall.

A wide range of attractions will be hosted at the festival along with the scheduled live music, with a craft fair and market among them.

There will also be a lifeboat demonstration for those who attend the Isle of Wight event, with a flower festival also to be set up in the town to mark the occasion.

Some 25,000 people could be booking Isle of Wight holidays to attend the Yarmouth Old Gaffers Festival this month.
