The Isle of Wight has welcomed acclaimed music stars such as Jimi Hendrix, David Bowie, The Who, Pearl Jam, and The Doors.

Transport

Oxfam offers a free foot passenger only ferry and shuttle from Southampton to the festival site.

Ferry dates and times will be added closer to the event. Once available, You can book this on your application profile under transport. Please note! These will be the earliest times, and you could be booked onto later ferry crossing times than those shown. Shuttle buses and ferries could also be subject to delays due to the number of people leaving the island, so please book your onward travel accordingly. We strongly recommend booking an open return railway ticket so you're not tied to a particular service.

If you wish to make your own way to the festival, either on foot or in a vehicle, the best travel offers can be found on the festival website. Red Funnel, Wightlink, and Hovertravel all offer deals if you are able to be flexible with your travel.

We allow volunteers access to site between Tuesday the 18th and Tuesday the 25th to allow you to take advantage of these offers. Please note that facilities such as portaloos, water, and electricity may not be available past Monday lunchtime so extended stays in the Oxfam campsite are best suited for those with live-in vehicles.
