Isle of Wight Festival tickets on sale today

Music lovers may be trying to get their hands on tickets for the 2012 Isle of Wight Festival this morning (November 25th), as passes went on sale at 09:00 GMT.

Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band have already been confirmed as the act to close the event and promoter John Giddings has stated they will be playing for more than two hours on the final night of the bash, which is set to run from June 22nd to 24th.

Tickets are on sale from a wide range of outlets, with organisers warning not to purchase from unofficial sources, while those who are planning to book an Isle of Wight holiday to coincide with their trip to the island to see some great bands may be tempted by a special package.

Isle of Wight ferry operator Red Funnel has tickets for the Isle of Wight Festival, as well as offering passes for revellers to travel to and from the island.

People who want to go to the event and buy their tickets from unofficial sources could find they may not prove to be genuine and could stop them from gaining access to the site next summer.

Tickets are priced at £190 for adults who want to camp on the Isle of Wight Festival location, while those who will stay at other accommodation on the island have to pay £160.

Children under the age of six gain entry for free, while those between seven and 12 pay £95 to camp and £85 if they are staying somewhere else during their Isle of Wight holiday.

Speaking about the event earlier in the week, Mr Giddings said the booking of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band is one he has been working on for seven years, describing it as "phenomenal" as they are one of the greatest live acts of all time.
