The 30,000 capacity festival has had some resistance from island residents but looks set to continue with what could possibly be a very strong Main Stage bill, including Elbow, Annie Lennox, Paolo Nutini, Roger Daltrey, Robert Plant & Band of Joy, Sade, and The Pretty Things.

Alongside this the Global Stage could feature many jazz and raggae infused line up, including Chaka Khan, Jimmy Cliff, Toots and the Maytals, Youssou N'Dour and Renegades Steel Orchestra.

According to the document, leaked by Ventnor Blog, the line up will also feature Corinne Bailey Rae, Levi RootsLianne Carroil and Genco.

There is currently no supporting evidence to authenticate the PDF release, which states all artists are to be confirmed, and also claims the festival hopes to become totally solar powered within five years.

Wowfest 2012 takes place at St Martin's Down, Isle of Wight from 17-19 August.
