Congratulations to Lionel and Duran Duran on being old enough to be considered to headline the festival, good reasons not to waste money this year, AGAIN.

Slightly better than last year,.. but with Snow Patrol headlining Saturday, why have the Kaiser Chiefs been relegated to the Big Top ???

I predict a Riot!

P.S. Question to IOW Festival,… as last year’s line up was so absolutely dire,. can I use last year’s ticket this year, so at least I get some of my money’s worth ?
