FESTIVAL broadcaster Sky Arts have ordered the giant’s longest ever non-sport 3D broadcast for this year’s Isle of Wight Festival.

The Newport-based event will broadcast for up to six hours a day over the three day festival, which runs from 22-24th June. A daily round-up showing all the best daily highlights will be aired on Sky 1.

2012 sees a massive leap in Sky’s coverage, as 2011 only saw two hours a day of live 3D content.
