WE ALL know the big name acts headlining the Isle of Wight Festival.

But what else is going on and who should we be looking out for?

With Liam Gallagher, Snow Patrol and Duran Duran just some of the headliners, we went to festival boss John Giddings for his top tips for enjoying all this weekend has to offer.

John's top tips:

  • Be nice to the person standing next to you. If everyone behaves, we'll all have a good time.
  • Head to the main arena at 1.30pm on Sunday for the filming of BBC Two TV programme Rock of All Ages starring Spandau Ballet's Martin Kemp, and Lady Leshurr.
  • We all know the headliners but go and see Megan McKenna, and The K's, and you won't be disappointed.
  • Find the Circus of Horrors in the Hunky Dory tent.

Added to this, John has booked the Red Arrows to perform a display at 4.55pm today (Thursday) to start the event in style.

Today (Thursday), Ricky Wilson of the Kaiser Chiefs visited the Wildheart Sanctuary in Sandown. Read more here
