    Isle of Wight 2019 Festival

    My guess is Monday for an announcement. Florence BST tickets and Muse tickets on sale Friday, so I'm thinking after that, which could make them both possibilities. I'd love to see The National play as well. If we get weather like this year it will all be good ☀

    I I'm pretty sure John has said he's not a fan of Dylan live nowadays, obviously the voice is showing signs of age. I personally think it's unlikely he'll be playing..

    Campervan, Worthy View & Tipis Sale Date

    Same here, I said I'd try and buy one for a friend, I got through and bought one, my Friend then texted saying he had also got through and bought one. Does anyone know what happens in those circumstances? I seem to remember someone saying duplicate tickets get refunded.

    VIP tickets

    They're still available from the official seller: http://www.markbutler.co.uk/mainsheet.asp?factsheet=925&category=Music+and+Concerts&event=3027

    Isle of Wight 2018 Festival

    That's a mixture of acts from different stages. I would guess kasabian and chase status will be on at the same time.

    I think Depeche Mode is a bit of a scoop. It would be good to see someone decent on the Thursday, I'm thinking Tears for Fears or PiL. The younger festival goers would probably not be too impressed with them though. It's very difficult to please everyone, if they'd got Pink Floyd back together some people would still moan.

    Music on the Thursday

    I've not been on the Thursday before. How crowded does the big top get? Thanks

    He mainly spoke about previous bands that had played and how he managed to get Depeche Mode to play this year. He did say there will be some surprises because of it being the 50th anniversary.

    Here's an interview with John Giddings saying there will be an announcement at the end of the month. There was also a banner on the official website saying it would be on the 28th of November but that's disappeared. http://iwradio.co.uk/2017/11/09/john-giddings-we-will-announce-isle-of-wight-festival-acts-later-this-month/

    Bought tickets earlier and it was a very quick & easy process but much less satisfying then getting tickets for Glastonbury . I see the campervan tickets are £220 and £320 with hookup + fees, seems expensive but they've sold out already. Here's hoping for a decent lineup and some sun

    St Vincent Tour

    Touring in October with a couple of dates in the UK. http://ilovestvincent.com/ FUTUREFEAR is the presale code if anyone is interested in going. I've seen her a couple of times, including near the front at the Park Stage in 2014 and she is very entertaining live.

    The National

    I loved it, stood near the rear of the sound desk and it sounded great to me. Matt was stunning to watch.
