Isle of Wight Festival, held from 9-12 June at Seaclose Park, is set to celebrate its tenth anniversary by hosting an urban beach.

Tonnes of sand are being delivered to Penny Lane on the festival site, where there’ll be deckchairs, beach huts, exercise classes, fire jugglers and beach yoga, plus live music and DJs.

Presented by Boxfresh, the new area will be a place to relax and unwind in between sets by headliners Kings of Leon, Foo Fighters and Kasabian.

Beady Eye, Hurts, The Vaccines and Plan B are also set to perform.
