WITH the news Stevie Wonder will headline Bestival in September, is this a vintage year for Island festivals?
Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band will close the Isle of Wight Festival at Seaclose in June and a host of other top acts will appear at both events.
It is not just these two festivals, there is the new WOWFest scheduled for August, with a bill of reggae, ska and blues acts, Tom Jones at Osborne house in July, next month's Isle of Arts festival and in August it is time for Ventnor Fringe.
So is it the best ever summer of song, or have there been better before?
