Isle of Wight 2018 Festival

Recommended Posts

My first reactions looking at stage splits:
1) It will really test my love of Kasabian having to stand through The Script to see them 

2) Soul II Soul followed by Hacienda Classical might actually win out over Liam/Depeche 

3) Thursday seems a little underwhelming.  I really like The Wombats, but a tribute band followed by a DJ act? Might just watch the football instead. 

4) I CAN'T WAIT

Bit gutted about the Chase & Staus / Kasabian clash (also the potential circa waves /chic clash)... the hacienda classical clash with depeche mode!! grrrr!!! at least we know travis are on after the killers.

I would rather stab myself in the ears that see the script haha

I've wanted to see Kasabian for so long that I might just have to put up with The bloody Script.

I expect Chase & Status to be on after Kasabian, and I expect Hacienda Classical to be on after Depeche Mode. Travis have already been confirmed to play after The Killers, and the same thing happened last year with DJ sets happening after the main stage headliners

Really hope so!! would be great if we could catch them all.... will be a nightmare trying to get into the tent after the main stage finishes though

I've updated the clashfinder based off of last years set times. It's looking good for me very few clashes although Friday will be back and forth between the Main Stage and Big Top a lot.

Obviously times are probably gonna change but its a good way to try and work out potential clashes already

Sam - many thanks - this is fantastic - I've used your clashfinder before and it's a massive help.

Liam (Laim) will be upset with you tho'.... :)

Or was that intentional.....!

I just noticed something, but maybe it's nothing...  Is there a noticeable gap between Kasabian and The Script on the new line-up poster?  
Is it just a poor design, or do you think maybe somebody new will be announced?  (I'm hoping it's the latter)

I think it's probably a combination of them wanting the headliners to be clear, the fact Manic Street Preachers have a longer name so take up more space and because there are less acts on the Friday.

They've said before how the full main stage and lineup had been announced. Also The Script, James Bay and Manic Street Preachers all have slightly larger fonts than the rest of the main stage so it doesn't look like anyone else will fit in above them

It's not poor design... its just the weighting and spacing of the acts to keep it balanced

They haven't announced times/days.... so there may well be a special guest.

This feeling added out of nowhere. Any recommendations of who to see on that stage?

Avalanche Party, sons and Calva Louise are must sees. almost every band on this poster is worth checking out though and are probably better than whats on at the mainstages.

just booked my tickets, lets hope I can get it off work otherwise looks like I'm handing in my notice.

question - I'm 17 so I booked a teen ticket, are there any restrictions inside the festival for people with this ticket? All I know of is that you have to enter the festival with an over 18 which I can manage.
