Following the Isle of Wight Festival's Golden Jubilee edition, last year. IOW 2019 looks set to be better than ever in 2019 with a killer line-up and a "summer of '69" theme. Still firmly one of our favourite's here at Festival Paradise, this festival boasts a heritage firmly rooted in the beginnings of music festival history. Founded in 1968, it is Europe's equivalent to Woodstock. 1970 saw legends Jimi Handrix, The Doors and The Who headline. And the big names have been coming to IOW ever since!

If this isn't enough to tempt you then think about the fact that this festival is a true getaway. What other festival offers you that holiday experience of arriving by ferry?! The Isle of Wight also enjoys a warm climate and you're more likely to enjoy some sunshine here!

The main arena has many different stages and tents, offering music and entertainment for all tastes. The main stage has hosted some true music legends over the years including The Doors, Rolling Stones and David Bowie. 

With plenty of added extras such as Bathing Under the Sky wood-fired hot tubs, a popular children's arena and a huge range of clamping options, this festival is ideal for harden festival go-ers and those in search of a more refined experience, alike.

What we love about this festival.

We love the unique feeling of arriving by ferry; it feels like a holiday and offers the escapism we all sometimes need. The award in 2015 for "Best Family Festival" was thoroughly deserved as this is a great festival to take your kids to. 

Camping and Glamping Options

The main camping areas aren't too far from the main arena. Likewise, the vast array of upgraded options are easily accessible and include family camping, Respect camping, Love Your Tent and a campervan area. These all offer affordable upgrades to make your camping experience a little more refined. There is glamping in abundance, with tipis podpads, yurts and off site camping at a nearby luxury marina. Here you can also find the truly decadent option on 5* marina apartments with river transport to and from the main stage.

Kids and families

We love the fact that the Kids' Zone is self-contained and close to the main stage meaning that it's easy to pop in and out with your kids. There's plenty of fun to be had here with rides, including a helter-skelter, shows, workshops and face-painting. 

The festival is free for under 12s and there are plenty of food options to keep your little ones happy.

A touch of luxury

The wood-fired hot tub on top of a double decker bus is a must! Yes, you did just read that correctly! Be sure to reserve your place, with "Bathing Under The Sky", quickly as sessions do sell out fast. We love the champagne bar, too. Don't forget all the glamping options and the 5* apartments on offer as you could make this festival experience your chance to really treat yourself.
