ISLE OF WIGHT FESTIVAL 2016 – 40 Years of Punk

The Isle of Wight Festival 2016 has just announced a fresh lineup of punk bands. Celebrating 40 Years of Punk, the Isle of Wight Festival will be featuring the likes of The Damned, Buzzcocks, Iggy Pop, Adam Ant and Sex Pistols cover band, The Sex Pissed Dolls.


In a press statement released by The Isle of Wight Festival: “1976 is widely seen as the year that punk was born. The Sex Pistols signed to EMI Records, and started to generate significant press coverage – not least for their infamous interview in December of that year with Bill Grundy.”

“The Ramones released their debut album in 1976, and the year saw the formation of not only The Damned and The Buzzcocks, but also other punk legends and luminaries such as The Clash, The Slits, X-Ray Spex, Black Flag and The Adverts.”
