With only a week to go until this year’s Isle of Wight Festival – organisers have today (Wednesday) announced a new immersive virtual reality experience dedicated to The Beatles.
Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, George Ezra and Biffy Clyro are among the acts who will headline the event.
This year’s theme will be ‘Summer of ‘69 – Peace and Love’, with fans encouraged to wear their ’60s best’.
And, today the festival has announced it is teaming up with The Beatles Story in Liverpool to premiere their VR experience dedicated to the band.
“Become The Beatles” will allow fans the opportunity to learn more about the Fab Four and witness Beatlemania through the eyes of John, Paul, George and Ringo.
Diane Glover, Marketing Manager at The Beatles Story, said:
“We are very excited to be launching our new virtual reality experience at this year’s Isle of Wight Festival on the anniversary of The Beatles’ visit there in the summer of ’69.
“What better way to celebrate this occasion by giving festival-goers the chance to virtually become one of The Beatles, playing to an audience of adoring fans on our award-winning attraction’s replica Cavern Stage.”
The experience will be available across the weekend and will be located in Strawberry Fields.
The Isle of Wight Festival returns on 13 June until 16.
