Discover New Music…

Created by the team behind the critically acclaimed Ventnor Fringe, Ventnor International Festival (VIF) is the Isle of Wight’s unique take on the metropolitan/city based music festival. Featuring a carefully curated line up of the most exciting emerging artists from across the UK and beyond, it’s a place to discover the next big thing. 

A single ticket provides access to a whole range of interesting venues, from warehouses to churches, spanning across the Island’s southern most town. Once the home to a bohemian Victorian arts scene these days it’s fast emerging as the Isle of Wight’s new gastronomic and creative hub.

Plus with VIF held to coincide with the Ventnor Fringe (which runs for the whole week!) it’s the best time of the year to discover the Island’s blossoming arts scene.

England's largest island is closer then you think...

The Isle of Wight is located off the south coast of England and is well serviced with regular ferry connections to the mainland. There are services that run every 30 to 60 minutes during the day.

Once on the Island travelling either by car or public transport is easy, taking around 45 minutes to get to Ventnor located on the southern point of the Island. Find full travel information here.
