The island, and its inhabitants, are some of the most accommodating you’re likely to meet. The deconstruction of his main tunes meant a lot of confusion abounded, until the infectious choruses kicked in, and parity was restored.
Albarn: “Look: there’s the fuckin’ VIP area. Some performers just have a way with a festival audience; it’s the essence of performing. There were acoustic and disjointed versions of his records in his set. © 2020 Festicket® Ltd. All rights reserved. There are so many songs from the Mac about overcoming addiction – the aforementioned being a primary example – but seeing this band back together, through all their travails, it’s clear their primary addiction is to each other. I return to my entourage and find out it’s already been played, and so I sit down.
The worst of it is, on the way out, we can hear ‘Coffee & TV’, which sounds epic. During an acoustic interlude, Buckingham displays why he’s one of the most underrated and best guitarists in the world – his finger-pluck acoustic rendition of ‘Big Love’ a stunning sight to behold, equalled by his rasping vocals. The festival that we know and love today is crammed full of fun things beside the music to keep us all entertained, there is a kids area, arts and crafts, stalls, magicians, fancy dress and heaps more. What are the odds? On screen it displays the message: “Up next: Fleetwood Mac”. This year sees a brand new show in the woods on the Saturday as the Midnight Bakery crew team up with Cirque de la Quirk, taking visitors to another world packed with fire eaters and jugglers. Everything is NOW.
However, when highlight ‘Hold Back The River’ arrives, everyone is on their feet. Happily, and against all odds, in a crowd of 50,000, the book was retrieved by a kindly soul called Angela… having been lost by a goofball friend called Angela. A car park pass is priced at £15, and a campervan ticket is priced at £120. The festival which offers top rock and indie names, legendary acts, and rising stars, on a large main stage, smaller tented stage, and smaller stages in a relaxed festival atmosphere returns for a 14th year from Thursday 11th until Sunday 14th June 2015. This year marks 45 years since Jimi Hendrix played the festival, and in his honour the main stage will be named 'The Electric Church'. The sunshine above us aligns itself with such unbound joy, and suddenly we’ve been inducted into unconditional euphoria – a critic’s nightmare. ISLE OF WIGHT FESTIVAL Seaclose Park, Isle Of Wight – Friday/Saturday Firstly, apologies for the tardiness of this review. After the bubbly optimism of previous acts, it all seems like a tired cliche – stock-still bands with an attitude. 2002 saw an end to the long wait, and Isle of Wight Festival was reborn. Blur crowds tend to be a bit thuggish, like football supporters (strange really, since the band are middle-class gentry), so starting the set thusly puts a nil-nil on the score on the board straight away. With a late license until 2am, this stage keeps the party going into the early hours. Isle of Wight Festival's colourful carnival of indie, rock, pop and electronic music is back for a 14th round since its celebrated modern reboot. We are here; and during ‘I Am The Resurrection’ finale, everyone is resurrected a couple of decades back. The Isle of Wight Festival announces that BRITs Critics’ Choice winner James Bay will be playing this year’s festival, which takes place 11-14 June. It’s strange to say, but all the members still pretty much look the same. We have to salute his bravery for that – to mix it up on the main stage at a major festival takes some balls (the fucker has even got those in abundance). A paradox that is like a magnet to every woman in the arena…. However, during the festival the operators schedule extra crossings to meet the high demand. To see who is playing when see the Isle of Wight Music Festival line-up page. Outside the station, a U1 bus will take you to the terminal.
For campers, the grounds open at 12:00 on Thursday the 11th June. Yesterday may have gone, but we will look back with heartfelt memories, and a cherished note in our history book. The Isle of Wight Festival announce blur as Saturday headliner, Isle Of Wight Festival Announce More Names On Its Lineup. The campsite closes at 14:00 on Monday 15th June. It’s truly remarkable how she’s maintained her voice – possibly the most formidable female vocalist of all time. Tim Booth still has his spaz-dancing proclivities, looking as he does like Michael Stipe in a bubble fending off a swarm of bumble bees. It seems Blur were not necessarily at fault – they sound great outside the confines of the VIP area. When she hits her heights, she can raise the roof of the firmament with such ethereal vocals. It’s not just that, but we’ve ventured into the VIP area to watch this, and sure enough it’s replete with flapping heads – megalomaniac media arseholes, who want nothing more than to talk about themselves (yes, I’m aware of the irony I’m part of that troupe, but trust me, I hate these self-important fuckers), none of which are actually watching the performance. Trains leave the airport towards Bournemouth every 20 mins, and will take you the 8 minute journey to Southampton Central. More information will be here when available. Like Radio 2.
A quandary: Kool And The Gang are gonna funk it up big time on the main stage; or there’s another retro party to attend on the Big Top stage with Stone Roses tribute, The Clone Roses (hey, nice pun). And set against the glorious sunshine, it’s an unforgettable festival moment – tailor made for these occasions. For non-campers, the festival opens at 14:00 on Friday 12th June. Not nineteen forever, chaps…. ( Log Out / Change ), You are commenting using your Facebook account. Blur: like a jungle man, so call the police. Seaclose Park is a large open space just north of Newport, the Isle of Wight's biggest town. Mini festival, Faroe Islands, June 2008 (Part Two), Bombay Bicycle Club – 'I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose', Johnny Foreigner – 'Waited Up 'Til It Was Light', Lovebox Festival 2009, Victoria Park, London. 2002 saw an end to the long wait, and Isle of Wight Festival was reborn.
Ian Broudie still hasn’t seen natural light, methinks, equipped as he is in his trademark sunglasses, even though he’s in a tent and the clouds encroach. Meanwhile, on drums our “Reni” in his dreadlock wig and trademark hat is pounding the canvas of this tent into submission, and the whole audience into rapturous, nostalgic abandon.
I certainly didn’t expect this at all.
The encroaching clouds have us all concerned about the weather. The Irish princess’s garish green dress and scary, Grace Jones-esque ice cream hairdo from Mars, just adds to the impish allure.

Petrified by the rumours (yes, pun still inevitable) that Fleetwood Mac aren’t going to make an appearance, Sunday’s ominous clouds take on more meaning, and become something of a portent.
The park is on the eastern banks of the River Medina. It’s an appropriate precipitation that aligns itself to May’s candyfloss, but ultimately air-filled, party-hard bubblegum punk-pop. A beautiful, transcendent end to a sublime weekend. Too late now. No bottles, or cans may be taken into the arena. The rough winds around us do shake, but here is one darling bud of May.
To the copious collection of behatted Tull faithful – each apparently comatose, clad in an approximation of the Mad Hatter, in parallel with the Tull’s anachronistic bluster – it all makes for a carnival of blackness, into which the sunshine falls like gothic trinkets into a black hole. Liam Fray: Courteneers in the act, sans towel, And so in stride The Couteeners. Her voice is haunting; her words are portentous. And what’s more, he’s simulating simian moves with his maracas like we haven’t evolved at all – he’s out-monkeying king monkey. Upon arrival, ‘I Wanna Be Adored’ is blasting out with ridiculous verisimilitude – it could almost be the band themselves. It’s arms aloft, let’s-have-it madness, and our “Ian” is conducting things with caricature-like incredibility. Making a return in 2015 is the 5,000 capacity circus style Big Top which plays host to a campers only special night on the Thursday, and acts as a second stage once the festival begins. Day ticket holders must come only on the day for which their ticket is valid. After the interlude, we’re back with the full ensemble, and the glorious (and personal favourite) ‘Gypsy’, with Stevie Nicks stage front hitting her notes with a voice so sharp it could shape diamonds. It’s quite possible we will never see this again. Create a free website or blog at WordPress.com. ( Log Out / And speaking of nostalgia, our big hug and hip-shake at the end of the set – and another round at the bar – means we are late back to the main stage for another retro favourite, James. Isle of Wight Festival 2015, Thu 11th to Sun 14th June 2015 - Seaclose Park Newport Isle of Wight - information, lineup, line-up, news, rumours, reviews, photos There’s always tomorrow. So that’s what we’re holding on for…. The early bird offer has ended. The rhythmic section of Fleetwood and Mc(Vie) couldn’t be more in tandem if it were programmed – particularly during the bass-heavy Formula One wig-out during the end. True to its past, Isle of Wight Festival continues to put on the biggest names in rock, but has embraced other styles too: Biffy Clyro, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Kings of Leon were joined by Calvin Harris in lighting up the main stage in 2014. The tension of the chemistry between the band is offset by a familial warmth, without which, let’s face it, the album Rumours would never have been made. If Suzi Quatro was a vaudeville country singer (with a bubble machine), we would arrive at Imelda May – a sandpaper-larynxed exponent of party-animal balloon music with all the twists that is like a jive at a children’s party, just as puberty kicks in.
This girl has it in spades. Myself, flanked by Abby the sis (left), and Ange the librarian.
