Kaiser Chiefs have undoubtedly established themselves as one of Britain’s most successful bands of the past few years, having scooped 3 x Brit Awards for Best Rock Act, Best Live Act and Best Group plus an NME Award for Best Album. Their Mercury Prize nominated, 5 x platinum debut album ‘Employment’ was one of the most hyped debut albums of all time and second album ‘Yours Truly, Angry Mob’ plus lead single ‘Ruby’ both went straight to the top spot earlier this year.
The Police Headline the Isle of Wight Festival 2008
THE POLICE HEADLINE THE ISLE OF WIGHT FESTIVAL 2008
Fresh from scooping the prize for Best Major UK Festival at this year's UK Festival Awards, the Isle of Wight Festival is again set to thrill tens of thousand of fans across the land over 3 days on 13th, 14th & 15th June. The Police will headline the Festival with a closing night performance in the beautiful surroundings of Seaclose Park, Newport.
Festival Promoter John Giddings confirmed The Police will headline Sunday night and bring 2008's Festival to a close, "It's a coup to get The Police for the Festival, we're very happy to have the biggest tour of the last two years stopping by the Isle of Wight." The Police will return to Europe in 2008, and the Isle of Wight performance will be the only UK festival show for the trio. The Police are currently on tour in Central and South America, having already played to more than 1.5 million people. The Billboard Award winning tour will start 2008 with performances in Australia, New Zealand and Japan before arriving in Europe for dates in Denmark, Spain, Poland, Czech Republic, Norway, Belgium, Germany and the UK.
The Police closing night performance at the Isle of Wight Festival will surely be one of the highlights of the summer. Now in its seventh year since its reincarnation in 2002, the festival brings together 50,000 free spirited, music loving, friends, families and Festival goers in front of one almighty stage, in a simply stunning setting. It is undoubtedly one of the most distinctive and well-loved festivals on the calendar and the two UK Festival Awards for Best Major UK Festival and Outstanding Contribution to Festivals (awarded to John Giddings) are proof of just that.
The Isle of Wight Festival takes place 13th - 15th June at Seaclose Park, Newport, Isle of Wight
The Isle of Wight Festival is a music festival which takes place annually on the Isle of Wight, England. It was originally held from 1968 to 1970, the venues being Ford Farm (near Godshill), Wootton and Afton Down (near Freshwater) respectively. The 1970 event was by far the largest and most famous of these early festivals; indeed it was said at the time to be one of the largest human gatherings in the world, surpassing the attendance at Woodstock. The most notable of over fifty performers were Bob Dylan, The Who, Jimi Hendrix, Miles Davis, The Band, The Doors, Ten Years After, Joni Mitchell, Melanie, Donovan, Free, Chicago, Richie Havens, John Sebastian, Leonard Cohen, Jethro Tull and Tiny Tim. The unexpectedly high attendance levels (mostly non-tickets holders) meant that local authorities and the festival organizers could not supply adequate amenities and guarantee public safety for all in attendance. Such concerns led, in 1971, to Parliament passing the "Isle of Wight Act" preventing gatherings of more than 5,000 people on the island without a special licence.
The event was revived in 2002 at Seaclose Park, a recreation ground on the outskirts of Newport. It has been held annually since that year, progressively extending itself northwards beyond Seaclose Park along the fields of the eastern Medina valley. Many notable artists have performed since its revival including The Rolling Stones, Donovan, Ray Davies, Robert Plant, The Proclaimers, David Bowie, The Who, R.E.M., Coldplay and Bryan Adams. It was sponsored by Nokia from 2004 to 2006. The promoters of the event now are Solo Music Agency and promotions. Apart from being held somewhere on the Isle of Wight, and featuring the now customary artwork of Dave Roe, there is no connection with the festivals of 1968–1970.
