A festival that encourages people to step out of their comfort zone, explore new music and immerse themselves in festival culture, Eklectica is back, and ready to rave!

Taking place at Robin Hill Country Park, the line-up announced to date includes The Fratellis, Pixie Lott, Toploader, Scouting For Girls, The Noisettes, The Hoosiers, Reggie Yates (DJ set) Tinchy Stryder and more.

The go-to festival for an escapist weekend full of chart-topping acts and wellbeing activities, Eklectica is also committed to championing newcomers in the music industry and will welcome artists including The Wolf Club, the Islands’s own Nakamarra and blues-rock guitarist Kris Barrass.

The Iw is a hotbed of incredible musical talent and here at Eklectica we’re dedicated to supporting local musicians. We’re delighted to have Platform One College of Music back at Eklectika 2018. Students will be performing on the main stage, as well as several acoustic acts across the site across the weekend of 7-9 September. The opening slots on the Main Stage on both Saturday and Sunday will feature original bands formed at the College.

It’s out with the wellies and in with the neon flamingos tomorrow (Saturday) as Eklectica hosts a tropical rave theme for festivalgoers.

Revellers are encouraged to dig out their brightest clothing, get creative with neon paint and experiment with colour.

As darkness falls over Eklectica, that’s when the theme will really come alive, as glowing crowds of colour will guide the way to the Neon Jungle…

Situated in the hedonistic area of Eklectica, the Neon Jungle is where everyone can embrace the tropical rave vibe.

The Disco Shed will be open all hours playing the best party anthems as well as top DJ sets and the African marquee adopts the neon theme too.

Event director Rob Holgate said: “We really wanted to come back with a bang this year and deliver a weekend that people will remember forever.

"And, people always remember a theme! Robin Hill Country Park is a magical place, day and night, but when contrasted with glowing festivalgoers and great music, it really comes into its own.”
