The 2013 Isle of Wight Festival lineup includes headliners like The Stone Roses and Bon Jovi. This is a great start to a fantastic lineup with final details to be announced sometime in December.


Many festival goers enjoy camping at the festival, but day tickets are also available for those who just want to attend for the day. Non-camping tickets are also available for the entire weekend, if you want to attend but don’t plan to stay on the grounds.

Tickets for the weekend, with camping, cost £175 for adults (about $280 U.S.), £75 for children 6 and under, and £92.50 for kids 7 -12 years old.

Aside from that, the Kids Zone offers plenty of interactive fun, too:

  • Arts and Craft Marquee features programs and workshops for the kids to express their creativity with their hands.
  • The Dressing-Up Tent is stocked with hundreds of outfits and the opportunity for the kids to transform into storybook characters or create someone new and unique.
  • Face-Painting Marquee is the place kids can have their faces painted or take part in the Make-Up/Tattoo Parlour to have their hair braided, nails painted, or get a temporary tattoo.
  • Ryde Extreme Performers: Kids will also be given the opportunity to develop circus skills like juggling and spinning plates in workshops.
  • Misc. fun includes Lego play sessions, the Cardboard Castles, stilts, Wishing Line Fairies, and more.
