Isle of Wight Festival - Friday 13 to Sunday 15 June 2008

Who's up for the yearly jaunt? We'll be over there on the 14th-gotta see Iggy and the Stooges,Ian Brown and the Sex Pistols. Tides are a bit better this year too so should be ok to stay right to the end.

I'll be there on the last day on a Motor Cruiser; think I might get better visibility from the Flybridge!

I've got tickets :-)

Have been persuaded to shell out for some tickets so will be there all 3 days - commuting from Hamble daily by RIB - GF won't do camping.

Guess I need to just sort out a shuttle bus / taxi from Cowes up to the site.

Looks like a fantastic line up.

Your best bet would to go to Island Harbour and walk from their as it is not too far. With regards to overnighting then if it is camping you are looking for I cannot help.
