Isle Of Wight Festival 2017 has a triumphant year with an incredible array of acts, many huge, and other up-and-coming bands, carving out a path towards stardom.

Photographers Ellen Offredy and Phoebe Fox were down in the pits getting close to all the best gigs. Arcade Fire and Run DMC were particularly great headliners and since they're acts big enough to headline a gigantic festival like Glastonbury, having the opportunity to see them at a 50,000 capacity event felt relatively intimate as it was easy to get through the crowds and into the heart of the action. The atmosphere the entire weekend was stunning, too. The weather was on our side and the beauty of the surrounding nature, friendliness of all the festival goers is testament to why IOW has people coming back time and time again.
