Desolation Row indeed… An abandoned welly boot at The Isle of Wight Festival

A final look at The Isle of Wight Festival then: Here are my favourite images of the weekend…

First up: Bruce Springsteen. The sun was setting as he approached the crowd. A couple of balloons floated by…

Elbow‘s set was one of the best. Guy Garvey‘s voice is amazing live….

The crowds at the festival were amazing…happy faces, broken umbrellas and strange expressions…

Spot the bug-eyed man in the picture: what a bizarre expression…

Madness were the hit of Saturday afternoon…

Madness, Madness, They Call It Madness…

The mosh pits have certain rules. First, you crouch down whilst you wait for the music to warm up…

The Mosh Pit during Biffy Clyro. First you wait….

Then when the music gets to the right level, this happens….

….then you’re all caught in a mosh.

The Ferris Wheel gave a good view of proceedings during Jessie J‘s set…

The other headliners included Pearl Jam…

…and Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers.

Noel Gallagher‘s set was a highlight for many…

…albeit he had to dodge a flare thrown onstage…

Noah and The Whale played a good set…

And Spector were the hit of The Big Top…

Let’s hope the Festival will be remembered for more than just the horrendous mud, mud, mud…

    Your photos capture it brilliantly – the good the bad and the well….ugly I guess! I’m with you on Elbow – I thought they were fantastic – but I’m a first time watcher of Bruce Springsteen and he was just incredible. I loved his set, a perfect end to a great festival – despite the odd quagmire here and there!
