Only thirty minutes from central London, chartering a helicopter makes one of the UK’s most inaccessible festivals an easy day return. Fly from London Battersea Heliport, or one of the smaller aerodromes that ring London, and be on the ground in Cowes just thirty minutes after take off.

No long queues on the roads heading to the south coast, or worries about ferry crossings. Hiring a helicopter to fly you to the Isle of Wight Festival takes all the stress and hassle out of the journey and has you arriving relaxed and refreshed, ready to party until the early hours.

A Festival to rival Woodstock

The Isle of Wight Festival was first held more than 40 years ago in 1968 but it was the 1970 event that made the record books. At the time it was said to be one of the largest human gatherings in the world, with an estimated attendance of over 600,000, surpassing the attendance at Woodstock.

The line up that year was a who’s who of the world’s most famous bands and musicians. Miles Davis, Jimi Hendrix, The Doors and The Who just some of the highlights. Unfortunately, the unexpectedly high attendance levels led to the passing of an Act of Parliament, banning gatherings on the Isle of Wight of any more than 5000 people. It was to be over thirty years before the Festival was held again.

Stunning weather and a star studded line up

The Isle of Wight has one of the sunniest climates in the country and it seems like every year the Festival bakes in glorious temperatures under blue skies. And, in the tradition of the famour festival in 1970, it always boats a stellar line up. This year’s offering includes Blur, The Prodigy and Fleetwood Mac.

Outside of the main stages there is the usual line up of old favourites and up and coming talent. And, if you fancy a break from the action, you can just head down to the beach for a refreshing swim in the stunning clear waters of the Solent.

With all this on offer it’s no wonder the Isle of Wight Festival is a must see event for so many. Make sure you join them this year and hire a helicopter to fly you and your party straight into the heart of the action.
