Artists to compete for Isle of Wight Festival attraction

A competition to find talented artists to showcase works at this year's Isle of Wight Festival is underway.

Organised by online music journal publisher Charlie Padley, the Isle of Wight County Press reports competitors will be given the chance to showcase creative works at the festival based on the inspiration of famous acts that have played there in the past.

Icons including Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, David Bowie and Mick Jagger are all in the frame, with winners to display their efforts in the new Bohemian Woods that is to open this year.

Festival organiser John Giddings told the publication: "This is a celebration of both the musical heritage of the festival and the huge pool of local creative artistic talent."

Earlier this month, Mr Giddings also revealed festivalgoers will be able to pamper themselves when attending this year's musical showcase, as new luxury spa facilities are to be offered to guests to help them unwind after a hard day's partying.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801573095-ADNFCR
