ISLE of Wight Festival organisers have confirmed the festival will go ahead this year.

Earlier today, it was revealed organisers were looking at the possibility of moving the festival.

Now, it has been confirmed the festival will go ahead later in the year - on the weekend of September 16-19, 2021.

A spokesperson for the festival said: "The festival is a summer staple and two years without being together on the Island is too long.

"That's why we're so excited to announce that we're moving the festival.

"We’re thrilled to be able to welcome everyone to the Island in September.

"We're aiming to bring back as many of the artists as we can but whatever happens, rest assured, you'll enjoy a stellar line-up over the festival weekend.

"It will be the perfect place to see out the summer in spectacular fashion.

"The Isle of Wight Festival is always guaranteed to provide unforgettable moments. It’s standing arm in arm with fellow festivalgoers in Seaclose Park. It’s watching the sun go down over the Main Stage, cheering as the fireworks light up the sky.

"It’s revelling in over 50 years of musical history and discovering incredible new artists. It’s experiencing the inherently magical Island atmosphere. It’s making friends for life and memories to last a lifetime.

"See you in September!"
