In pictures: Isle of Wight Festival

Access visited the Isle of Wight Festival this weekend (11-14 June), where Blur, Fleetwood Mac and The Prodigy performed.

Blur frontman Damon Albarn set aside voice worries to deliver a show stopping set, while Fleetwood Mac had the crowd singing-a-long throughout. The Prodigy and the Black Keys, meanwhile, provided an edgy diversion from radio friendly favourites like Jessie Ware and Paulo Nutini.

See our gallery above, featuring backstage pictures of organiser John Giddings and a host of performers.

Giddings said: “It was an incredible weekend. Having Fleetwood Mac close the festival was a dream come true, and we saw some fantastic performances over the weekend – Blur, The Prodigy, The Black Keys, Paolo Nutini to name a few. The atmosphere all weekend was great, everyone was having a good time, I am very happy indeed.”
