Isle of Wight Festival 2022 stage times: When you can see Lewis Capaldi, Sigrid, Kasabian, and Muse
The Isle of Wight festival, or simply IOW Fest is back this summer, drawing huge crowds for the short trip across The Solent to see one of the biggest UK music festivals of the summer at the famous Seaclose Park venue.
Getting to the Isle of Wight festival is often an adventure in itself, with the remote island location making acsess some thing of an issue. Best advice is to make sure that you allow plenty of time to get to this site, expect heavy traffic and long delays, and, most importantly, pack and prepare with pretty much any weather conditions in mind - that means plenty of warm and waterproof clothing, sturdy shoes, and if you're camping, make sure to test your tent for weather proofing before you turn up!
