The Isle of White Festival is known as a family festival. It has many activities for children such as magicians, story tellers and circus acts. All of them take place on the rainbow stage throughout the three days. Live music will start on 14th June on main stage, the big top stage and the dance tent. Friday will be headlined by the Stone Roses and it will be the only festival appearance of the rock band in 2013. Other bands on Friday are Paul Weller, Emeli Sandé and Jake Bugg.
The Killers will headline at the legendary festival on Saturday. Festival promoter John Giddings said: “We are proud to bring one of the world’s greatest rock bands of the last decade to our small island off the South Coast of England…thanks for coming-it will be a weekend to remember!”
Rock band Bon Jovi will close the festival with a headline slot on Sunday night. It is their debut performance at the festival and will be their only UK festival performance of 2013. Jon Bon Jovi said: “The Isle of Wight Festival is legendary and we’re excited to join in the long tradition of rock’n’roll history.”
The festival was revived in 2002 and now hosts some of the biggest names in rock and indie. The festival was originally formed in 1968 and was headlined by Bob Dylan in 1969, but shut its gates in 1971 after the government band the gathering of more than 5000 people without a licence on an island.
