Reflecting on the three-day show, Isle of Wight Festival director John Giddings said: ‘From the response we are getting it appears to have been our best year so far.

‘Having sold out in advance was fantastic, the acts on the weekend all delivered, the audience really took the 50th anniversary gold-themed day to heart, and the weather certainly helped. Here’s to 2019.’
