The Isle Of Wight Festival 2009
The Isle Of Wight festival looks good this year with an interesting line up, though saturday and sunday are still to be confirmed. It does say “The Prodigy" are playing as well as the “Basement Jaxx” “Pendulum” and “The Ting Tings” on the Friday which sounds like a great line up for the first night.
I of course love the Isle Of Wight festival as I live on the Island and don’t have to camp, it’s mad watching the final act perform then driving home and seeing it broadcast on TV about 50 minutes later, amazing how fast they can do these things now. The last time I went I saw “Amy Winehouse” and “The Rolling Stones” so it will be hard to top that year. I took the photo above myself, not bad considering I was in a huge crowd of people going "Wow look it's Mick Jagger and Amy Winehouse!" if I do say so myself. So anyway I’m eagerly waiting to see what other acts will be confirmed.
If you are travelling to the Island for the festival check out the Shanklin Accommodation there are some beautiful hotels and places.
