Barclaycard presents the Isle of Wight Festival – Headline Partner
Steeped in an extraordinary 54 years of heritage, June’s Isle of Wight Festival, one of the UK’s most important and acclaimed music events, has seen many legends take to the stage, including Jimi Hendrix’s first ever UK festival performance and David Bowie’s last. In 2023, the friendliest festival in the UK will bring top tier entertainment to the stage with headliners Pulp, George Ezra, The Chemical Brothers and Robbie Williams. From genre defining legends of rock and pop to electrifying new talent, the festival is one of the most renowned and revered in the summer calendar.
Caroline Giddings, Director, the Isle of Wight Festival, says: “We’re looking forward to working with the Barclaycard team to enhance the Isle of Wight Festival experience for our fans. Each year we look to take this historic festival to the next level and having the support of partners like Barclaycard allows us to do just that. We can’t wait to welcome everyone to the island in June.”
Dan Mathieson, Head of Sponsorship at Barclaycard, says: “We are delighted to be renewing our long-standing partnership with Live Nation, cementing our support for the UK’s incredible music scene, and giving our customers even more opportunities to benefit from using their Barclaycard.”
