Back in 1970s the Isle of Wight Festival attracted huge crowds and is widely acknowledged as the largest music event of its time. Fast-forward 40 years and the reborn festival continues this tradition, attracting more than 50,000 revellers each year.

Set over four days, the festival features two main stages, along with a whole host of other smaller stages showcasing a mixture of established and up-and-coming music acts. Global superstars that have graced the stages here include Bruce Springsteen, Kings of Leon, Foo Fighters and Paul McCartney.

If you are a fan of festival nostalgia you could even take a half-day trip from the festival’s current home in Newport to the original site in Afton, near Freshwater, where just up the road you will find a Jimi Hendrix tribute statue.

This year's lineup includes The Who, Queen & Adam Lambert, Stereophonics and Faithless.

Isle of Wight Festival takes place from 9 to 12 June.
