V-Dub Island on Isle of Wight this weekend

The Isle of Wight is getting ready to host V-Dub Island this weekend and it is sure to be one of the highlights of the island's annual calendar.

From tomorrow (August 2nd), the County Showground in Northwood will play host to hundreds of Volkswagen (VW) enthusiasts who will gather to compare their motors and enjoy a full weekend of entertainment on the Isle of Wight.

According to a report by the Isle of Wight County Press, Stuart Poore, who heads the island's V-Dub Damage Club, believes at least 70 local vehicles will be present at the gathering.

Some 25 VWs from its Croydon Chapter are also expected to be travelling to the Isle of Wight, along with revellers from all over the country.

Goodbye Stereo, Southern Big Man, Dub Pistols and Radio 1 DJ and Bestival curator Rob da Bank are among the musical acts who have been lined up to perform at the County Showground in Northwood on the Isle of Wight over the course of the weekend, with entertainment taking place at the location until Monday.

The V-Dub Damage Club has also chosen the event as the ideal chance to launch its new charity Open Doors, which is aiming to get disabled people involved in the restoration of a VW Beetle, with the disassembly of a 1968 Beetle to take place at V-Dub Island.

It is an island-registered car donated by Island Coachworks and is sure to be one of the highlights of the weekend for those booking Isle of Wight holidays to meet up with fellow VW enthusiasts from up and down the country.

The Ohmz, Ben Goddard, Tony Walton, The Vecks and The Hillmans are among the other musical acts who will be taking to the stage over the course of the festival.
