Isle of Wight Festival popular among older revellers

A new poll has revealed that the Isle of Wight Festival is a popular event for older revellers.

According to research by YouGov, over a quarter of the people in the UK over the age of 55 who attend festivals have been to the annual Isle of Wight event.

This compares to a figure of just four per cent for revellers between 18 and 34 years old.

The study also revealed that six per cent of the overall number of festivalgoers of all ages have travelled to the island for the bash.

YouGov suggested that the poll results are "perhaps reflecting the range of artists from generations gone by" at the Isle of Wight Festival.

This year's event was headlined by Jay-Z, The Strokes and Sir Paul McCartney and has recently been announced on the shortlist for the Best Major Festival at the UK Festival Awards.

The winner of the prestigious award will be unveiled in a glitzy ceremony at the Indigo2 venue this November.
