Dig out your blouses and bell-bottoms — the Isle of Wight Festival is going back to 1969.

Organisers have announced a theme of Summer of ‘69 - Peace and Love, in homage to the iconic festival of 50 years ago. The 1969 festival had headline performances from Bob Dylan and The Who.

Musical tributes to Dylan and themed areas across the site will ensure festival-goers are able to celebrate the past and look to the future, with the 2019 line-up featuring artists including Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, George Ezra, Biffy Clyro and special guests Fatboy Slim.

On Saturday, June 15, those dressed in their 60s-best should gather at 2pm in Strawberry Fields, where one lucky person will be crowned the King or Queen of Summer.

1969 was filled with iconic pop culture moments including Neil Armstrong becoming the first man to step foot on the moon, John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s bed-in for peace, and the release of The Beatles’ Abbey Road offering a wealth of iconic figures and moments to base costumes on.

Simply Dylan, a UK Bob Dylan tribute, will take to the Big Top stage on Thursday 13 to celebrate the songwriter’s back catalogue.
