Isle of Wight Festival launches Facebook game

Fans of the Isle of Wight Festival are able to pick their ultimate line-up for the event on a new game launched on social networking site Facebook.

Those who play the game will be able to build customised stages at the event, as well as discovering the very best in new music along the way.

Music Festivals, The Game allows players to mix between the biggest headline acts and some of the hottest acts in the industry at the moment.

People playing the game can also check out the festivals created by their friends on the app, which over the course of time builds up a 'cool factor' for both of them.

The organisers of the event noted: "If a player decides they like a particular track, they are just a couple of clicks away from downloading the track in standard MP3 format for use in their favourite music player."

There are 16 million online tracks to choose from, so players are sure to enjoy the range of music on offer for them to select to play at their own festival.

"Users will soon be able to see how cool (or not) they are compared to their friends, encouraging some healthy music banter and the discovery of new artists," the organisers of the event pointed out.

Headline acts already revealed for the 2012 Isle of Wight Festival include Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Pearl Jam and Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band.

Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, Example, Biffy Clyro, Elbow and Madness will also be taking to the stage at the event over the course of the weekend, which takes place from June 22nd to 24th.

Others acts already confirmed to be playing at the Isle of Wight Festival include Noah and the Whale and The Vaccines, while Feeder will open the main stage on the Friday.
