Isle of Wight Festival 2023: All You Need to Know

One of the UK’s largest, and most eclectic festivals is back for this year and booming.

Taking place from the 15th – 18th of June at the Island’s Seaclose Park, the Isle of Wight Festival is starting Summer off with a bang! 

With festival-goers itching to come back to the Island after last year’s huge success with amazing headliners like Tom Jones and Liam Gallagher, we can reassure you that this Summer’s event is not one to miss!

Who’s Performing?

Throughout the Festival, there’ll be an exciting lineup of artists from Drum & Bass to Reggae…. So here are the highlights:

Main Stage performers from Friday to Sunday feature: Pulp, George Ezra, Blondie, The Chemical Brothers, James Bay, and more.

Getting There

Getting to the Isle of Wight couldn’t be easier. All you need to do is get to one of the four mainland ferry ports at Southampton, Southsea, Portsmouth, or Lymington. Then jump on a quick ferry where you’ll arrive at the Island. 

Alternatively, you can get there with Big Green Coach from various locations all over the UK. They have official IOW weekend camping tickets with coach travel as a package, or you can simply buy a return coach ticket. 

There are also shuttle bus services from ports directly to the festival site. 

Is It Kid-Friendly?

Short answer: Definitely! In fact, children under 4 are FREE and you can book tickets for kids between 5 and 12 years old for £7.50. With a full-blown funfair and games, the Isle of Wight Festival is a kid’s paradise.


The Festival’s weekend-long ticket allows you to camp out on their 180-acre campsite which runs alongside the beautiful River Medina. So you can pitch up a tent when you arrive, and take in the views.

For weekenders that prefer Glamping instead of Camping, sign up for their Boutique camping provided by Pink Moon Camping. With this, you can enjoy a range of pre-pitched standard tents, quality toilets, showers, a bar, and much more!
