Probably not a surprise really with the line up Isle of Wight have put on for their 50th Anniversary celebrations but unfortunately it’s now too late to get a weekend ticket as they have all sold out.

There are other options though, with Sky TV broadcasts and a handful of limited day tickets still available. Flick of the Finger Magazine will be bringing you all the action from the whole weekend right here on this site.

The festival starts this week on Thursday 21st June at Seaclose Park, Newport with Kasabian, Depeche Mode, Liam Gallagher and The Killers all performing headline slots across the weekend with Camila Cabello, Rita Ora and Blossoms also appearing.

In honour of the festival’s ‘Golden Jubilee’, all attendees are invited on Saturday 23rd June to adorn themselves in gold for a weekend of fun and celebration. Expect to see sparkling divas, shining stars and victorious gladiators come together for this year’s 50th anniversary. One lucky festival goer will be annointed as a ‘Golden God/Goddess’ to receive an exclusive backstage experience. Further details here.

Also for those lucky souls looking forward to spending some quality time at Seaclose Park you could get even more in the mood with this spotify playlist curated exclusively by the festival here

If you can’t get there in person – well the Isle of Wight Festival 2018 will air exclusively on Sky Arts and Sky One with coverage broadcast live in UHD and for the first time ever in Dolby Atmos Audio. Joel Dommett, Edith Bowman and Vick Hope will host the coverage starting this Friday 22nd June at 7 pm.

As there is no Glastonbury in 2018, IOW is going to be “the” festival to watch this year.
