With this year’s Isle of Wight Festival unable to take place, Sky Arts are planning to ensure festival spirits are high over 12th – 14th June, as they air exclusive content from the archives as part of “Isle of Wight Festival – Greatest Hits”.

A summer without live music wasn’t on the cards, but The Isle of Wight Festival and Sky Arts have come together to allow fans to celebrate some of the festival’s most iconic performances.
