A favourite among Islanders at the Isle of Wight Festival, the Kashmir Cafe tent promises local bands and excellent ale - including this journalist's favourite cherry beer (please leave some for me!).

It's a charity stage and supports Newport's Quay Arts centre.

In the past, Teenage Dirtbag hitmakers Wheatus have played here.

Set to play the tent this year are Plastic Mermaids, Tuba Libres, JC's Panama Picnic Orchestra and Beth Brookfield, among many many more.
