The Isle of Wight Festival 2017 is supporting Record Store Day by encouraging fans to rummage through vinyl offerings at Ventnor Exchange.

The festival is giving away five pairs of weekend tickets to this year’s festival. Each pair is hidden inside mystery records for lucky customers to find throughout the Ventnor store.

The winners will have the opportunity to see headliners Arcade Fire, David Guetta, Run DMC and Rod Stewart, as well as Bastille, Zara Larsson, Rag’N’Bone Man, Kaiser Chiefs, Alison Moyet, Example, The Pretenders, The Shires, Mel C, George Ezra, Jack Savoretti, The Vamps, and many more, perform across the weekend.

Festival promoter John Giddings said:

We’re incredibly excited to partner with Ventnor Exchange for Record Store Day. The day plays an important role in supporting independent stores and record sales, bringing together hundreds of the UK’s independent record shops and celebrating their unique culture. The Isle of Wight Festival aims to support local businesses and we try to work with as many as possible, and what better than the island’s one and only record store!”

This Saturday marks the 10th anniversary of Record Store Day, celebrating the culture of independent record stores.

First launched in America, the event has helped to propel to revival of vinyl, which overtook sales of CD’s in 2016 for the first time in decades.

The evening will see the return of the BIG Record Store Day? Quiz with some fantastic prizes to be won, including a signed autobiography from this year’s Isle of Wight headliner Rod Stewart.
