I.O.W Festival Headliners Announcement

Beach Events assisted in the announcement of the Isle of Wight Festivals Saturday night headliners yesterday, with the creation of a giant sand sculpture of the bands logo and name in the golden sands of Appley Beach in Ryde.

The sand sculptures were created over 2 days using 200 tonnes of sand and were heavily guarded by security until the announcement was unveiled to the worlds media at 2pm yesterday.

The band is of course the Red Hot Chilli Peppers who said of their engagement : ‘To headline the Isle of Wight Festival is a once in a lifetime opportunity, following in the footsteps of Jimi Hendrix and The Doors. When we were offered the slot, we jumped at the chance…it will be our only show in the UK/Ireland this year…so we intend to make it really special.’

John Giddings commented “Finally- we’ve got them! One of the most exciting rock bands of the modern era come to visit…and judging by the performances I have seen previously, will be a highlight in the music history of the festival…Rock the Wight!”
