MUSIC fans are being urged to snap up their Isle of Wight Festival 2021 tickets as soon as possible, with the event reportedly on the brink of selling out.

The rescheduled four-day festival is scheduled to take place at Seaclose Park in Newport from September 16 to 19.

Festival organiser, John Giddings, told offer website the Price is Wight that the full allocation has almost been snapped up already.

John told the Price is Wight: "People are still buying tickets and we are very, very close to being sold out — we will definitely sell out in advance of the Festival.

"There are very few tickets left, so please don’t moan at me that you have missed out when we put up those 'sold out' signs!”

Around 50,000 revellers are expected to attend the long weekend, which will be headlined by Liam Gallagher, Snow Patrol, David Guetta and Duran Duran with special guest Sir Tom Jones.

John, who told The Price is Wight he believes the festival will go ahead without social distancing, said: “I expect the June 21 unlocking will slip back a little because they are worried about this variant.

“But I can't see the Government delaying it by more than two to four weeks, and that won’t affect the festival in September.

“By the time the festival comes around you won’t have to wear masks and you won’t have to social distance."

Tickets are still available to buy online at a discounted price by visiting The Price Is Wight website.
