Isle Of Wight Festival: the best (music) bits

Isle Of Wight Festival: the best (music) bits

As you might know already (because you're all very dedicated and read heatworld every day), we were on the Isle Of Wight this weekend, getting our festival rock on for the annual music extravaganza that is the Isle Of Wight Festival. And we have to say, Foo Fighters, Kings Of Leon and Kasabian (amongst others, see below) totally blew our minds (oh, and probably Kate Moss' mind as she was celebrating her hen do there).
In fact, it was Kings Of Leon that first lured Mossy out of her secret location on Friday - and as they belted out some of their hits old and new (Sex On Fire and Use Somebody included), there we were having a dance around the side of the stage, not too far from Kate and her hen party. That was exciting and surreal all at the same time!
But it was the Saturday and Sunday acts that really got us going (Saturday was very sunny, so that in itself was a winner). We saw the lovely Parade girls take to the stage with Lady Gaga's pals, the cute-but-crazy Semi Precious Weapons, before they got all the boys in the crowd going with their big hit Louder and current single Perfime. Then electronic duo Chase and Status managed to totally knock us off our feet (it wasn't the cider, promise) with a series of hits like Blind Faith and End Credits (yeah, we're not all about Girls Aloud and JLS, you know).
But it was Pulp and the Foos who completely stole the show with Jarvis Cocker clambering on stage equipment to see the vast crowd during Disco 2000 and Common People, while the Foos had about 80,000 people, including Kate Moss, Sadie Frost, Jade Jagger and Meg Matthews, rocking right out to Times Like These and Best Of You. Amazing!
Sunday of course was wellie day. We were drenched in the rain - but that didn't stop us enjoying a bit of Plan B (his rendition of Stand By Me had the crowd going crazy, Pixie Lott (who wore actual teenie shorts despite it being about ten degrees outside) and the fantastic Two Door Cinema Club (who brought the audiences out of their soggy tents for a bit of Undercover Martyn).
Finally Kasabian closed the Festival on the main stage - but sadly this was the one day when Kate wasn't going to make it out with her girls to see the headliners. Well, why would she when it's heaving it down with rain and, well, she could probably pay them to play at her wedding if she really wanted to!
