Isle of Wight – Acrobats and Hovercrafts (Part 2)

Note: I’m currently away at Glastonbury… this is a queued post!



On Tuesday I told you about the first few days of the Isle of Wight festival 2013 where I saw bands including The Killers, Blockheads and Levellers. This is the second half of my Isle of Wight adventures!


When Newton Faulkner first arrived on the music scene I immediately warmed to him. For some reason though I never really listened to many of his songs. I managed to catch the very last song of his set on the Sunday which was actually a cover of Bohemian Rhapsody. It was a really good version of the song and I’m definitely going to check out the rest.


I’ll admit that the only Boomtown Rats song I knew was I Don’t Like Mondays. I still really wanted to see Bob Geldof so I was excited to see the Boomtown Rats reform after 20+ years. Their set was amazing and ever since I’ve gotten home I’ve been listening to their greatest hits!


One thing I love about music festivals is the random things you find if you walk around the site. This acrobat was tucked away in the trees on the way back from the main stage and I stood for a while fascinated by her moves!


The festival was closed by none other than Bon Jovi. His set was filled with greatest hits as well as newer songs and Living On A Prayer was a wonderful festival moment. I still say that I preferred the Killers but this was a brilliant way to end the weekend.


After that it was the hovercraft and the 10 hour journey home!

Thank you for another wonderful year Isle of Wight!
