FERRY bosses are offering bargain return travel to the Isle of Wight festival from as little as a tenner.
Following the lifting of most Covid restrictions, the famous festival returns from Thursday September 16 to Sunday September 19.
Headliners include Liam Gallagher, Tom Jones, Snow Patrol, David Guetta, Duran Duran and Kaiser Chiefs.
If you book a Wightlink foot passenger day return for any day of the festival it’ll cost just £10 if you book before August 15.
Short stay fares are also available from just £16 per adult departing from Portsmouth or Lymington.
For foot passengers, Wightlink’s FastCat port is located just a few steps from Portsmouth Harbour train station.
The crossing to the Isle of Wight takes as little as 22 minutes, and festival shuttle buses will run from the quayside.
To secure a crossing see the special offer site, complete with terms and conditions, here.
The discount deal comes as rival ferry operator Red Funnel is making flexible foot passenger returns available for £11, sailing from Southampton. See their deal here.
The hugely anticipated IOW Festival 2021 is playing host to a wealth of big name acts, and going all out to make it more memorable than ever.
Thursday warms up in the Big Top with Scouting For Girls and others before Liam Gallagher is Friday’s main stage headliner. Snow Patrol and David Guetta top the Saturday bill and Duran Duran close the festival on Sunday.
Others performing over the weekend include Tom Jones, The Script, All Saints, Becky Hill, Ella Henderson, Imelda May, James, James Arthur and Kaiser Chiefs.
There’s Lightning Seeds, Maxïmo Park, Primal Scream, Razorlight, Roachford, Sam Fender, Scouting For Girls, Seasick Steve, Shed Seven, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Supergrass, You Me At Six and many more.
Of course, the weekend wouldn’t be the Isle of Wight Festival without at least one set from Jimi Hendrix tribute band Are You Experienced?
Beyond the main stage, there’ll be a number of alternative areas offering varied entertainment – from a dedicated ‘Kidzone’ for youngsters, to the rather more adult ‘Cirque du Quirk’.
