Founder and promoter, Callum Fairweather, said:
“This has been so difficult to keep under wraps, but I’m very excited to announce the bulk of the line-up for Fairweather 2018! I still can’t believe I’ve persuaded Razorlight and Shaggy to come to the Island for my little festival!
“We truly hope there’s something for everyone throughout the weekend and we’re proud to be hosting acts from around the world alongside some great local talent. See you at the Airport!”
