SMILING faces have been turned to frowns now the Isle of Wight Festival crowd have left and returned to reality.

Fear not though, as the weekend will live on in our hearts after performances that can only be described as extraordinary.

Headliners Noel Gallagher’s High-Flying Birds had the beer-drinkers singing their lungs out, while George Ezra set off tears for mothers in the crowd.

When George Ezra played Budapest, screams of happiness ensured that the star sung beautiful harmonies in return.

Biffy Clyro had rockers off their camping seats and dancing on their feet, while pop stars Bastille, Anne-Marie and Lily Allen wowed the crowds.

Perhaps the most memorable performance was from Fatboy Slim, who tore the house down with drum and bass bangers.

Another touching moment came when Lily Allen hosted a one-minute silence in honour of the Grenfell Tower tragedy - a time when all revellers put down their beers and paid their respects to all those who were affected.

All in all, the Isle of Wight Festival drew a mixed array of festival-goers, including children in fairy-lit crates being pulled along by parents, and hens and stags partying and about one million plaited multi-coloured heads.
