The latest weather reports for the Isle of Wight Festival are in - and the results look mixed.

Looks like the weather won’t be as good as line-up, with rain predicted for Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the Isle of Wight.

BBC Weather, The Weather Channel and the Met Office have all reported light showers and winds over the weekend for the Newport area, with weather staying quite cool instead of the unusual warmth of late. Although there will be chance of some sunny breaks on the Saturday, rain is most likely to strike at some point throughout the weekend.

The music at the festival will begin this Friday (June 22nd) and will continue to Sunday (June 24th). Headliners include Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers (Fri), Pearl Jam (Sat) and Bruce Springsteen (Sun). Other big name artists such as Elbow, Biffy Clyro, Madness and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds will also be playing the event.

Like many modern festivals, this one offers much more than just the music, with other activities including the Last Chance Saloon: a wonderland of games, quizzes, live bands, bingo, cheeky burlesque, DJs, cabaret and live band rock karaoke.

Of course, festivals wouldn’t be festivals without some ridiculous alcohol fueled entertainment too. This year sees the site play host to events hosted by Carling and Strongbow, and if you’re looking for something a bit more classy there’s also a champagne garden.

Isle of Wight festival runs between June 22nd - 24th.
