Isle of Wight Festival 2018 starts tomorrow!

This year, FAULT will be sporting our finest glittery glad rags to help celebrate the 50th anniversary of Isle of Wight Festival 2018. Guaranteed to be a cracking year and soundtracked by none other than FAULT Issue 27 cover star Liam Gallagher, along with The Killers, Kasabian and Depeche Mode.

Isle of Wight Festival 2018 lineup

Every year Isle of Wight continues to bring some of the best live music around! With the likes of Manic Street Preachers, Nile Rodgers, Rita Ora and Chase and Status also making an appearance, there’s guaranteed to be an act for all to enjoy.

And of course, it’s not all about the music, Isle of Wight is also a fantastic opportunity to unwind and get stuck in to some fine dining. With a huge variety of food stalls on offer at the Octopus’ Garden, you’ll be able to experience a range of culinary delights.

With the Old Mout Cider Kiwi Camp back for a second year, they’ll also be providing plenty of entertainment with Disco Yoga, Rockaoke and much more, running all day and night.

Or, if you want to just kick back on the sofa swing and take it all in. The bar will be fully stocked with that crisp, cold, fruity stuff that Old Mout make so well.

We’re most excited to see James Bay return to the stage to perform his blistering follow up album Electric Light, along with The Killers belting out some familiar stadium-sized hits and Liam Gallagher adding some swagger to the stage.

There will also be a range of awesome indie tunes being blasted out This Feeling, the UK’s best club for future rock and roll, which is making a welcome return and bringing with it to the stage Hey Charlie, Avalanche Party and many more – all of which gives this year’s Isle of Wight a real edge in the UK top festival stakes!

Iggy Azalea announces release date for debut album, ‘The New Classic’

iggy-copy2

On the 21st April, Australian sensation Iggy Azalea will be releasing her long-awaited debut album ‘The New Classic’, following a fairly extraordinary year that has seen her garner two Top 20 singles, over 1Million followers on Instagram and YouTube views totaling 50Million.

For a pre-album artist, these statistics are pretty staggering, but then so is Azalea’s music (and, it has to be said, her visuals). She first burst onto the scene with the track Work, accompanied by a high-octane video that sent social media into a frenzy. Her track Pu$$y was yet another viral sensation, and Change Your Life (featuring rapper T.I.) made it into the Top 10 in the UK.

With production credits including Timbaland, writing by the likes of pop phenomenon Katy Perry, and guest vocals from Rita Ora and dancehall legend Mavado, this album looks set for success. Azalea has given herself a lot of hype to live up to, but given her unstoppable climb thus far, she has reason to be sure of herself. We have a good feeling about this one…
