It’s widely known that The Isle of Wight Festival is the first major festival in the UK summer calendar every year. But the Festival’s heritage reaches back over an extraordinary 51 years, is incredibly rich and varied and some facts are better known than others.

Here, we share some of our favourites with you...

The Isle of Wight Festival began with a series of Festivals between 1968 and 1970, widely acknowledged as Europe’s equivalent of Woodstock.

In 1970, a line up over 5 days included (amongst others) Jimi Hendrix, The Who, The Doors, Joni Mitchell, Supertramp, Leonard Cohen, Joan Baez, Chicago, Procol Harum and played to over 600,000 people.

There was no Isle of Wight Festival between 1970 and 2002 – when John Giddings, an established music promoter, seized the opportunity to re-launch it. John still curates every part of the Festival we enjoy today.

Since 2002, The Isle of Wight Festival stages have hosted The Rolling Stones, The Who, David Bowie, Muse, Foo Fighters, Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney, Pearl Jam, Kasabian, Amy Winehouse, Kings of Leon, Jay-Z, The Strokes, Coldplay, The Sex Pistols, Fleetwood Mac, The Police, Blondie and Biffy Clyro.

The Isle of Wight itself enjoys a micro climate. Our location, just 2 hours from London door to door, yet across the water, provides a feeling of escapism that others struggle to achieve.

Real music is our heritage and one we’re constantly building on. Like life, music constantly evolves and changes, and so do we. We’re a Festival for real music lovers of all ages and that’s why this year you’ll find and teen tickets and family-friendly areas as well as a raft of accommodation options for the non-campers and VIP services for those who want to do a Festival, but not in the traditional way.

If you’re an SVF regular you’ll know what we’re all about – a festival experience like no other, in a beautiful rural setting, that is completely secure for all campers and only 2 minutes’ walk from the village of Stanhope, with a safe, friendly atmosphere for all ages, and full of lovers of great music, who all want to enjoy a cracking weekend. We've sold out for the last 3 years and SVF North won't get any bigger now, as we want to keep that same vibe that works so well. If you haven’t been before, you’ve missed out for 7 years – so what are you waiting for? The rescheduled 2021 line-ups are the best we've ever had
