Enjoy the Isle of Wight Festival 2008? Been looking forward to the Isle of Wight Festival 2009 ever since? The wait is over, well at least for the tickets… Next year’s festival based over 3 days from the 12-14th of June could be the event of the summer.

The Isle of Wight Festival have featured rock behemoths like Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, Bob Dylan and The Who. In recent years superstars like Foo Fighters, Coldplay, Amy Winehouse and Muse have wowed the audiences and made the festival one of the most influential and popular in Britain.

Rumours are rife that Britpop legends Oasis plan to headline this years festival after the release of their number one album “Dig out your soul.” A close friend of the band was recently quoted talking about the festival and online forums have been red hot ever since, he said: “Oasis are keen to get on the road again because they’re really proud of this album (Dig out Your Soul). The Isle of Wight Festival is a big one for them as it’s really upped its profile in recent years.” Sounds pretty likely!

Since 2007, when the Isle of Wight Festival received multiple plaudits and won “Best major festival of the year” the festival has been put forward for four categories in this year’s awards list. After last years tickets sold out in record time, it is advised to buy now to avoid disappointed friends and family!

The tickets for the weekend (including camping) are £77.50 for kids and £152.50 for adults. Tickets (not including camping) are £67.50 for kids and £132.50 for adults. As far as short breaks in the Isle of Wight are concerned you probably could find one more enjoyable but if you’d rather not be camping for three days then maybe stay at one of the Isle of Wight luxury hotels?
