ISLE of Wight band Reminders won this year's Wight Noize contest, securing themselves a slot on the main stage at Isle of Wight Festival in June.

Young Isle of Wight musicians took to the stage at Strings Bar and Venue, Newport, on Saturday for the competition organised by Platform One College of Music.

Reminders, self-described as a beach punk band, consists of Leo Dyke, Max Battista and Harry Spencer.

They will be opening the main stage at the Isle of Wight Festival on the Sunday, before The Killers take over the stage later in the evening.

Leo said: "Winning Wight Noize is a huge deal for all of us in Reminders.

"It is a crazy experience for me as I wrote some of these songs that audiences are singing back to me when I was 14.

"It’s a crazy feeling knowing that songs I wrote have resonated with people in any fashion at all - and for them to be recognised on the main stage of one of the most prestigious festivals in the world is amazing.

"Harry, Max and I have all been working hard for a while now, and this feels like our hard work is paying off, and will be the perfect way to end our UK tour in June.

"We want to take Reminders as far as it can go - and hopefully people recognise our hard work and we plan to leave it all up there on the main stage and show people what we are made of."

Strings was packed out for the annual music showcase.

The Wight Noize initiative was conceived by Platform One, which has strived to develop opportunities for young Isle of Wight bands since 1999.
