Isle of Wight festival first took place in 1968 and has gone from strength to strength since then. Having celebrated its 50-anniversary weekend in 2018, the festival has an iconic line up history. Isle of Wight has welcomed acclaimed music stars such as Jimi Hendrix, David Bowie, The Who, Pearl Jam and The Doors.

With such an impressive track record, 2022's edition is sure to deliver another amazing weekend of top music talent and festival fun. Alongside a stellar music line up which includes Lionel Ritchie, Muse, Lewis Capaldi and Kasabian, the festival has comedy, theatre, fairground, arts, film, food and a trip over on the ferry to enjoy too!

Transport

Oxfam offer a free Foot Passenger only ferry and shuttle from Southampton to the festival site. The ferry will leave Southampton Ferry Port no earlier than at 1pm on Wednesday 15th June and return on Monday 15th no earlier than 3pm.

You can book this on your application profile under transport. Please note! These are the earliest times, and you could be booked onto later ferry crossing times than those above. 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 via 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 14th and Tuesday 21st to allow you to take advantage of these offers.
