What we’ve been up to…Isle of Wight Festival 2012

It’s rare you’d find me at an outdoor event involving wellies, mud or rock music,  but as part of the Acer U-Experience, I spent Saturday at the Isle of Wight festival and discovered that if you’re a family type or get your kicks from angsty acoustics and radio-friendly pop, it’s a worthwhile gig to leave the capital for…

The Music

There were three music areas to choose from – Main Stage, Garden Stage and Big Top – but given my particular urban tastes, I wandered between the main and top, and found time to enjoy the likes of Labrinth, Jessie J, Katy B and Tinie Tempah.


The highlight of those was undoubtedly Jessie J, who you can’t help but be impressed by her soaring vocals; when she sang Who You Are, the dramatic pause that followed spoke volumes of her status as currently one of the most stunning female vocalists in the country.


There was a beach on the site which was hilarious to visit and made a brief change from the mud on the site that you could barely avoid. I was also tempted to try out the funfair’s bungee jump – a stomach-churning ride that catapulted into the sky  – but as fun as it may have been, it’s something I can confidently say I’ll never do again (!).

Isle of Wight The Cultural Expose


Jamie Oliver’s Fabulous Feasts in the hospitality area was incredible (I never knew summer fruit cake and bakewell tart ice cream could taste so good!). But as for the food stalls on site, shame on that £7 chicken  burrito I picked up for not being close to worthy and the greasy chips I bought afterwards to try and compensate for it. Not great.

The Crowd

To my surprise, there were alot of young families in attendance, as well as middle-aged adults and teenagers – so displays of excessive drunkeness were rare, making IoW one of the more respectable fests worth visiting if you like to keep it chilled.
