John Lydon: Isle of Wight Festival is excellent

The Isle of Wight Festival has been praised by one of the major acts playing the event this summer.

John Lydon, singer with PiL, stated that while there is a certain image people have in their mind of revellers at the island-based bash, the atmosphere changes when he comes on stage.

The Sex Pistols star headlined the Isle of Wight Festival in 2008 and stated that the organiser of the event John Giddings is a "goody".

Speaking to the Daily Star, he said: "I've watched that fest on TV and it always seemed like rows and rows of people sitting in deckchairs.

"It's very excellent."

Lydon is now arguably best-known for appearing on television advertisements for a brand of butter, while he also took part in the I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here! programme on ITV in 2004, leaving on the 11th day of the show, which was won by former Atomic Kitten singer Kerry Katona.
