Book your hampers in advance
Festival-goers are welcome to take their own picnics, but to save you the trouble you can pre-order picnic hampers.

They’ll be packed with delicious Isle of Wight, so don’t forget to select your hamper when purchasing your tickets.

Free workshops
There’ll also be free community workshops taking place (by public ballot) offering an exciting line-up for kids and young adults, which will continue into the weekend.

These workshops aim to inspire the next generation by getting them involved in music and giving them exposure to the arts that they would not otherwise ever experience.
