John Giddings, who brought the annual gathering back after a 32-year hiatus, will continue to lead the festival

Through LN-Gaiety – Live Nation’s UK joint venture with Denis Desmond’s Gaiety Investments – the festival and concert promoter became the majority shareholder of the festival, IQ Magazine first reported.

“John Giddings and the Solo team have developed the Isle of Wight Festival to be one of the most iconic festival brands in the world,” says Live Nation UK chairman Desmond, “and it’s fantastic to be able to add it to our growing and diverse portfolio of festivals.”
