Organisers of the Ventnor International Festival (VIF) have announced the latest names set to play at their August multi-venue event.
Garage rock party animals The Parrots will be flying in from Spain to play a special set at the Isle of Wight’s first urban/town based music festival. VIF will host intimate gigs in churches, rooftops and warehouses on Friday 11th August, running alongside the fast-growing Ventnor Fringe Festival.
Also joining the bill will be MOBO ‘Best Jazz Act’ award winner Moses Boyd with his unique solo drum/electronic project and south London’s newest export Cosmo Pyke.
They join a line up which already includes a host of bands to look out for, including Bad Sounds, Girl Ray, Happyness, Her’s, Elder Island and Puma Blue.
Ventnor Exchange Director Jack Whitewood said “Forget the mud and often clashing sound systems, this is a chance to catch intimate gigs in amazing spaces with some of the most exciting new bands around today. We’ve been working really hard on a line up that brings acts from all over the UK and abroad who want to join us in building on the Island’s unique musical heritage. VIF is a pretty ambitious move to keep the Island in the spotlight as a unique festival destination.”
