MORE information is expected next week on the future of this year's Isle of Wight Festival.

The event has issued a statement after the Prime Minister's roadmap out of Covid-19 lockdown was revealed yesterday (Monday).

Responding to a fan on Twitter, organisers said options are currently being considered and an update is due soon.

In a tweet, the Isle of Wight Festival said: "Following the Prime Minister's statement last night, we're exploring our options and we'll be back with more information next week."

Daily Echo:

In January, Solo's John Giddings said he had his fingers crossed for this year's Isle of Wight Festival.

He made the comment after Glastonbury 2021 was cancelled - saying it was much bigger operation to organise and therefore had been forced to make a decision earlier.

This year's rescheduled Isle of Wight Festival is due to take place at Seaclose Park, between June 17 and 20.

The Prime Minister's four stage plan concludes on June 21, just one day later, when nearly all restrictions are expect to be lifted.

However, Boris Johnson warned yesterday (Monday) that each stage would only happen if infection rates remained low, if the NHS was not under pressure and if no new variants had emerged.

Lionel Richie, Lewis Capaldi, Snow Patrol and Duran Duran are among the acts lined up to take to the Isle of Wight Festival stage if it goes ahead this year.

When the 2020 event had to be called off, The Script, Jess Glynne, Carly Rae Jepsen, Mavis Staples, The Snuts and The Alarm were all added to this year's bill.
