Isle of Wight Festival tickets available on the door

People who want to attend this weekend's Isle of Wight Festival will be able to buy tickets for the event on the door.

Festival promoter John Giddings stated that he has set aside 1,000 tickets to be bought on the opening day of the event (Friday June 11th) in an attempt to combat ticket touts.

He told the Isle of Wight Gazette: "The one thing I hate is driving along Fairlee Road and seeing touts selling tickets for the festival at inflated prices and making money out of me."

Mr Giddings explained that the tickets will be available on a first-come-first-served basis, so those who wish to attend the Isle of Wight Festival may wish to get to the site at Seaclose Park in Newport early enough to secure their tickets.

Those who do get tickets for this year's Isle of Wight Festival will be treated to performances from headline acts The Strokes, Jay-Z and Sir Paul McCartney, as well as newer bands such as Vampire Weekend and Detroit Social Club.
