Confirm your place at the Isle of Wight festival for less

Wednesday, 21 September 2011 1:33 PM

The interest in next year’s Isle of Wight festival, taking place from June 22-24th, is already growing as they get set to celebrate their 10-year anniversary.

The event has previously welcomed some of the biggest names in pop and rock, including the likes of Kings of Leon, Foo Fighters, Kasabian, Manic Street Preachers, Jimi Hendrix, Sex Pistols, Jay-Z and Pink.

Next year’s festival is sure to be bigger and it’s also sure to be a sell-out again but ‘early-birds’ can make sure of their place and get their tickets at 2011 prices, when they go on sale for just two weeks at the end of the month.

From 12 noon on 30th September until 14 October festival goers can book three-day non-camping festival and travel tickets for £168.10 for foot passengers and £244.50 for car and a driver.

Camping inclusive packages are available at £193.10 for foot passengers and £269.50 for a car and driver.

Wightlink Marketing Manager Kerry Jackson said: “Whatever the line-up, the Isle of Wight Festival never fails to disappoint. This two-week presale is a great opportunity for festival goers to grab their tickets early, saving money on both the festival pass and ferry fare, and avoiding any last minute panic next year.”
