Britrock reimagined 'could be Isle of Wight Festival's catchphrase'

Britrock fans may be tempted to book tickets for the Isle of Wight Festival in the future, after the event was described by a review as offering a reimagining of the genre.

According to a report from the Newport-based bash published by the Guardian, sets from the likes of Beady Eye and Kasabian - both of whom took the stage for the final day last night (June 12th) - show how the country's music has developed.

There was also praise for a comeback show from 90s indie heroes Pulp, as the Sheffield group's performance on Saturday claimed they have remained relevant despite a lengthy absence.

"Jarvis Cocker - despite greying beard and geography teacher attire - is still charming, droll and demented, dishing out local Isle Of Wight trivia between tunes," noted the news provider.

NME quoted Cocker as saying he had been on Isle of Wight holidays as a child, recalling a visit to the popular tourist attraction Blackgang Chine during a trip to the island.
