The Isle of Wight Festival has stepped up its weather defences in light of the floods that trashed transport links in 2012: http://tinyurl.com/mqtmjnj
“I’ve expanded the car parks and created some proper roads into the entrances and exits so I can never have a repeat of what happened last year, where it was so wet the car park entrances collapsed,” organiser John Giddings told the NME.
“We had a month’s worth of rain in 12 hours. People told me it was freak weather, but we have to prepare ourselves [nevertheless].”
The Isle of Wight Festval takes place at Seaclose Park from June 14 to 16.
