United Kingdom | 14 June 2010
From Jay-Z to Paul McCartney, this year's Isle of Wight Festival was full of flying singers, special guests and inflatable kangaroos. Here's how Gareth Vipers lived it through the eyes of Twitter...

#vf Just bumped into Florence backstage, she's looking forward to her Jay-Z support slot later tonight #IsleOfWightFest
#IsleOfWightFest The big top tent is being treated to a video of Dave Berry practicing his Marina introduction speech. Pretty painful stuff.
# #IsleOfWightFestival is pretty upbeat today following Jay-Z's storming set last night. The sun is shining and VF has a cup of tea in hand!
# Festival tips from Bombay Bicycle Club - use baby wipes and don't throw up on the stewards. Thanks lads, very useful! #IsleOfWightFest
# Paloma Faith attempting a penalty shoot out in bright red high heels - ambitious but hilarious #isleofwightfestival
# #isleofwightfest Well done to the guy who managed to find the only muddy puddle & jumped in head first!Main stage filling up now, sun's out
# #isleofwightfest Mixmag's editor showing his Dj Hero skills on the main stage. The Hold Steady sound checking look less than impressed.
# Paloma Faith just came off stage @ #IsleOfWightFest heading towards the hotel with a bottle of champagne and a golf buggy
# #IsleOfWightFest Check out the OzBBQ stall, amazing kebabs and a chef dressed as a clown. What more could you want?
# There seems to be a large inflatable kangaroo dancing to Crowed House... #IsleOfWightFest
# Excellent show from Vampire Weekend although the drummer's controversial USA top doesn't get much love #IsleOfWightFest
# Blondie are laying down the rock platform for The Strokes in style - "one way or another..." #IsleOfWightFest
# Reviewer's rule no.1: avoid cliches. It's bloody fever pitch here. The Stokes on stage very soon at the #IsleOfWightFest
# It's got chilly here at #IsleOfWightFest but Ferne Cotton dancing to Hammer Time has certainly warmed us up. Strokes in t-minus 10.
# Julian Casablancas can hardly stand let alone speak. His perfomance is still faultless. Just kicked into Last Nite #IsleOfWightFest
# VF just managed to shake Casablancas' hand, he invented rock n roll, and hug a 60 yr old gimp. #IsleOfWightFest
# At least Liam from The Courteeners enjoyed The Strokes yesterday. "they totally smashed it didn't they". Yes, they did! #isleofwightfestival
# The lovely ladies in the VIP garden at #isleofwightfestival are loving TheCourteeners, dancing their little socks off!
# They've got the extended platform up today @ #isleofwightfestival. Pink's on @ 7 and I hear she's got quite the stage show, carnival and all
# Martin Kemp slapping some super cool bass. Cheers to the cowlgirl who just gave us a beer #IsleOfWightFest
# Pink just getting lowered onto the main stage at #isleofwightfest from a crane. Full carnival set up, cannons the lot!
# Now Pink is flying around the arena 10ft above our heads in a emerald jumpsuit - amazing show! #IsleOfWightFest
# Macca is keeping the Alan Partridge fans happy with some classic Wings material. Overshadowed so far by Pink though #IsleOfWightFest
# Just got home from #isleofwightfestival, now watching it all again on ITV2. Reliving the huge Sir Paul set of earlier this evening
