Isle of Wight 2012 Isle of Wight
Festival 2012
June 22 - 24
Seaclose Park, Newport, UK

Starting out in the late 60's as a British catalyst to the new music scene, the Isle of Wight Festival quickly grew in 1969 when they landed Bob Dylan as a headliner. Big names like Joe Cocker, the Who, and Jimi Hendrix followed. By 1970, the festival brought in over half a million people and was widely regarded as the British Woodstock, which was great, but the festival was out of control in terms of drugs and fighting. So much so that the British Parliament passed the Isle of Wight Act in 1970 banning all of festivals on the Island. The Isle of Wight Festival eventually made a comeback in 2002.


The 2012 Isle of Wight Festival has named an initial lineup, with Bruce Springsteen and E Street Band as the Sunday headliner. The dates for the show are June 22 - 24. Recent additions include Enter Shikari, Katy B, Ash, Pulled Apart By Horses and The Virginmarys have all been added to Big Top stage; New York Dolls, Christina Perri, Stackridge and Beth Hart join The Garden Stage.
