Isle of Wight Festival 'has it all'

The Isle of Wight Festival has been described as having it all, with revellers heading to the island for this summer's event informed they are sure to have an action-packed weekend.

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Pearl Jam and Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band have been confirmed as the headline acts for the weekend and this is making the bash one of the hottest events on the calendar for this year.

According to a report on the Isle of Wight Festival by UK Festival Guides, the island setting of the gathering is "beautiful" and ensures revellers are in a holiday mood as soon as they arrive.

"The Festival really has it all ... from world famous artists to its very own beach, there really is something for everyone," it said, noting many "unforgettable" performances are set to take place over the course of the weekend, with Pearl Jam set to play a UK festival for the first ever time.

Meanwhile, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers are coming to the UK for the first time in two decades, while Bruce Springsteen was named as one of the world's most influential artists.

"The Garden Stage once again plays host to some of the best up and coming artists and established acts," it was added, with The Charlatans confirmed as playing their classic record Tellin' Stories in full at this part of the event, while Crystal Castles will also be performing here.

Organisers of the event recently confirmed a whole host of new additions to the bill of the festival, with Ash and Katy B travelling to the Isle of Wight this summer, along with Enter Shikari, New York Dolls and Pulled Apart By Horses.

Other acts performing on the main stage at the Isle of Wight Festival - which takes place from June 22nd to 24th - include Madness, Feeder, Jessie J, Example and Elbow.
