We chat to Isle of Wight festival organiser, John Giddings



Hi John, How would you describe Isle of Wight Festival to us in three (amazing and fabulous) words?

John: Sun…Sea…Sand…

Who's your favourite act on the line-up this year?

John: The Stone Roses

And any up and coming acts we can't afford to miss?

John: Bastille, Kodaline, Imagine Dragons, Paloma Faith, I Am Kloot and Everything Everything.



We love handbag.com, but we want your job! Where do we start?

John: Become social secretary at uni; start small but aim big, set up local gigs at clubs and meet people in the industry.

So what's been your most surreal festival to date?

John: The first one, I had no idea who would come, in the end we had seven and a half thousand people.
 
And which bands would you love to book for next year?

John: Blur, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Fleetwood Mac and Arctic Monkeys.

Confession time, what's been your biggest festival fashion faux pas?

John: I wore a colour once by accident; my bedroom was dark when I was getting dressed!
