    To be fair to the Isle of Wight they do organize Cowes Week and the Isle of Wight festival. So they are not beginners at looking at the logistics of big events.

    Fingers crossed !

    Apparently it was announced in the Isle of Wight County Press the other day.

    Thanks for that @Stuish a bit more info than i managed to gather from other sources. Looks like there's still some hope of an event taking place.
