The Isle of Wight Festival 2023 was a swirling vortex of sonic rebellion, debauchery, and transcendental chaos. From the moment I set foot on the hallowed grounds of Seaclose Park, I knew I was in for a ride straight into the heart of the wildest musical carnival of the year.

by john / Aug 30, 2022 / 0 comments

This year was my first time attending Reading/Leeds since 2015. My reasons for not attending in the last few years have been down to my assumptions on what the experience would be like.

This year, Boomtown brought with it a sense of immense excitement and cautious apprehension. It’s no secret that three years of lost revenue would impact any festival, let alone one that reinvests so heavily in the spectacle of art and culture. The recondensation of the city was the talk of the town as the anticipation rose with the citizens gathered at the gates. As the fences were cleared and life began to flood the streets, worries faded as people were consumed by the twists and turns of the redesigned city.
