Have your say

Another year, another summer of music festivals approaches. And it all kicks off with the Isle Of Wight Festival next weekend.

From Thursday to Sunday, the line-up includes names like The Happy Mondays, The Stone Roses, The Killers and Bon Jovi, who each headline a different night.

Also on the bill for the main stage are Paul Weller, Emeli Sande and Jake Bugg on Friday, The Maccabees and Ben Howard on Saturday, plus The Script and Paloma Faith on Sunday. Portsmouth Act Blackfoot Circle will be making an appearance at the Hipshaker stage. While Palma Violets (our Big Interview on pages 2 and 3 this week) and Bastille (our big interview next week) will both be on the main stage.

The whole thing will be shown on Sky Arts. But if you’d rather be there, tickets are still available:
