Isle Of White Festival 2012 Lineup
Submitted by Nik88 on 2012, March 9 - 1:16pm
Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, Pearl Jam and Bruce Springsteen and The E Street Band are the headliners. It looks like Isle Of Wight has gone back to the good old 80s and think these are great headlining bands. Tom Petty hasn't played in the UK for decades, Pearl Jam are not too bad and The Boss has some epic songs.
Although I think the rest of the line-up is bit of a let down. On each stage, there are only two or maybe three acts/bands that I would watch. I would like to see Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds as I want to see how Noel does without Liam and Oasis. I suppose Primal Scream would be cool, but I've seen them before.
To be honest apart from that, there aren't many acts that are jumping off my screen as a much watch. Past line-ups haven't been too bad really but recent line-ups and this year's festival looks like it's trying to cover a broad variety of genres by having acts/bands such as Jessie J, Tinnie Tempah to Feeder, Biffy Clyro and Magnetic Man. I also recently read that Lana Del Rey has even been added to the line-up... I'm unsure about her; I think she's a bit boring. I've seen a fare few of the acts before, so the overall line-up looks a little average.
What are people's thoughts on the Isle of Wight line-up so far? Is anyone planning on going to the festival?
