Isle of Wight Festival Toolkit
Would you like to have two free 2017 Isle of Wight Festival Weekend tickets worth over £350 ? Then help us spread the word about how good our great Festival really is.
The organisers of Isle of Wight Festival are offering Wight BID levy payers and voluntary contributors (accommodation, hospitality, attraction and activity providers from the Isle of Wight) an opportunity to claim two free weekend tickets worth over £350 to this year’s festival in return for featuring the Isle of Wight festival on their websites, in social media and enewsletters, with the banners, photos and links supplied in this toolkit page.
Many people visit our Island for the very first time because of a major festival or event. As many as 60% of all new visitors come back to the Island time and time again over the years, bringing friends and family with them.
Attracting new mainland visitors to our festivals helps to create a long term sustainable and healthy tourism industry on the Isle of Wight. The more of us that promote great events on the Island, the better our prospects for increasing our Island visitor numbers.
