Acoustic Isle line-up finalised

The Isle of Wight's reputation as a mecca for live music enthusiasts looks set to be given further credence through the upcoming Acoustic Isle festival, which will see over 100 acts perform from March 13th to 23rd.

Part of the Isle of Wight Festival Fringe, the popular event sees big names join the bill alongside up-and-coming talents and local stars.

Gigs are to take place at restaurants, cafes and bars across the island, reports the Isle of Wight County Press.

Festival promoter John Giddings said: "We had a great year at the festival last summer, with some fantastic talent across our three stages, so it's fantastic to be working alongside Visit Isle of Wight on Acoustic Isle."

The tourism body's chief executive David Thornton expressed his hope that this initiative will attract new visitors to the island.

Potential stars of the programme include former Who member Simon Townshend and Joe Gladdis, who is a local businessman in addition to being a talented musician.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801694543-ADNFCR
