This year’s Isle of Wight Festival will be shown on Sky Arts – and it will be the first time a major festival has been broadcast in Ultra HD.

Coverage of the event, which has headline acts including David Guetta, Rod Stewart, Run DMC and Arcade Fire, will be available via the Sky Q platform.

Sky Arts will air four hours of live Ultra HD entertainment from the festival on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, hosted by Edith Bowman, Maya Jama and Kaiser Chiefs frontman, Ricky Wilson.

The festival will also be available on Sky Arts for non-HD subscribers – meaning you can re-live all the action and watch your favourite acts again and again.

You can buy tickets to this year’s music extravaganza at Seaclose Park, Newport here.
